Osogbo, Nigeria

Osogbo, a city of approximately 350,000 people, is located in the heart of southwestern Nigeria's Yoruba-speaking people.

Legend has it that Osogbo was first settled about 300 years ago by two hunters with an offer to protect all their descendants from outside tribal attacks in exchange for their promise not to hunt near her sacred Osun River. The people began to worship Osun regularly, and today the colorful Osun Festival draws tourists from all over the world to celebrate "sacred people and sacred places."

Osogbo is now the capital of Osun State, a major distribution point for electrical power in Nigeria, and one of the foremost centers of Yoruba arts and culture in Africa.
