If you try in the city, you are immediately struck by a dazzling colonial building. Indeed, the city of Buea has long been the seat of the institutions in the German era and to strengthen its position, the governor of the time, Jesko von Puttkamer built a sumptuous villa, which remains far. The Bavarian architecture of this “palace” that overlooks the city and slice seems absurd in the African setting. It is unfortunately visible from the road, because you can not visit it. Often lost in the mist, the palace is conducive to ghost stories. Thus says the widow of von Puttkamer haunted places at night and she plays the piano in his apartment. She would sometimes accompanied by a secretary, a servant or an officer of her husband. Some also think that a treasure is buried.
After the independence of Cameroon, the palace served as a residence to the Prime Minister of the time. It is today the official residence of the President of Cameroon during his visits in the region.
