Makola is located in the city center and is the main market and shopping district in Accra. The renowned ”Makola Market” is Accra´s largest open-air market which overflows with goods, people, scents and sounds. The market is often very crowded and it is one of the best places to absorb the atmosphere of a West African market. It is quite an amazing place with lots of very narrow alleyways where you can find almost anything you are looking for.
