Ivory Coast, also known as Côte d’Ivoire, is a West African country with beach resorts, rainforests and a French-colonial legacy. Abidjan, on the Atlantic coast, is the country’s major urban center and dubbed the “Manhattan of Africa.” Its modern landmarks include the ziggurat-like concrete La Pyramide and St. Paul’s Cathedral, a swooping structure tethered to a massive cross. For more than three decades after its independence from France, Ivory Coast was known for its religious and ethnic harmony, as well as its well-developed economy. Despite instability, Ivory Coast is the world’s largest exporter of cocoa beans, and its citizens enjoy a relatively high level of income compared to other countries in the region.
