Bata is situated on the mainland and belongs to Equatorial Guinea. It is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa. It is one of Africa´s smallest and wealthiest countries as well and Bata is small and well-maintained. I would like to share it with the community because this place never gets any attention

^^..I though the same too....but I think it could be very cool at the same time......:cool:

I heard Equatorial Guinea still has strong relationships with Spain (as the latinamerican countries)...and as for the pictures.........the city has some similarities with some Mexican small cities in the coast of the Gulf of Mexico , maybe is the mix between the signs in spanish, the spaniard colonial architechture and the new developments)..:lol:...anyway..its nice to see pics from Eq Guinea. :cheers:

Looks good, judging from the pictures, it's the first time I heard about the city. Is the whole city so modern and wealthy? Or does it have tons of slums like most other African cities?

As far as I know the Equatorial Guinea has the highest GDP per capita in Africa and it is still growing thanks to huge oil deposits in the offshore area of the country. It may sound unbelievable, but it is close to 50 000 dollars per person. More than in many European countries,synonim for wealth!

No wonder that its cities are being reconstructed and modernized.:)
