Description The village of Nzulezo is located near the village of Beyin, roughly 90 kilometers west of Takoradi, in the Jomoro District of the Western Region of Ghana.

Nzulezo overlooks the Amansuri lake, and is entirely made up of stilts and platforms. In 2000, it was nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it is a major tourist attraction area.

Nzulezo was built over Lake Amansuri, the settlement of Nzulezo consists of stilt-supported structures integrated seamlessly with the water-dominated natural landscape.
This site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on January 17, 2000, in the Cultural category

The village was nominated to become a World Heritage Site for its importance in anthropology: in addition to being one of the few ancient settlements on stilts and platforms left in the world, there is a preserved wealth of local traditions .
