The mainland and its islands
The city consists of a mainland and a number of islands around the Lagos lagoon. Iddo is the smallest island of Lagos, located near the mainland and linked to this as a peninsula. It is on the island of Lagos that the business center is located, with large buildings along the marina and other places of interest, such as the National Museum, the Lagos Central Mosque, Glover Memorial Hall, Christ Cathedral (CMS) and the Palace of Oba. It was also here — specifically in Tinubu Square — that, in 1914, the ceremony that would unify the territory of Nigeria took place, establishing the frontiers as we know today. Alongside this, we also have the island of Ikoyi, formerly home to the federal government of Nigeria and Victoria Island, home to some of the most expensive real estate in Africa, as well as Nigeria's largest mall and cinema and some of the best beaches in the country.
