The city is dominated by Aso Rock, an enormous monolith that the seat of power is popularly named after.

For Abuja residents, the hiking trails and public parks are features of the city they are super proud to have and share with visitors. Be sure to pack your hiking boots on your next visit to the city.

Just like every other northern state in Nigeria, make sure to get a taste of Kilishi on your visit.

Fun Fact: Abuja is one of the few purpose-built cities in Africa, so every building in the city is somewhere in the big city plan...no mistakes, no second thoughts.
