Ilé-Ifẹ ̀ is an ancient Yoruba city located in present-day Osun State south-western Nigeria, about 218 kilometres northeast of Lagos with a population of 509,813.
It is the capital and principal religious centre of the Yoruba people. Ilé-Ifè is famous worldwide for its ancient and naturalistic bronze, stone and terracotta sculptures, dating back to between 1200 and 1400 A.D. Bronze heads were unearthed in 1938 and taken to the British Museum.

The sophistication and craftsmanship of the bronze heads challenged the western conception of African Art.
The famous Ori Olokun Head has been adopted as the logo of numerous
educational institutes and has become a universal symbol of African Heritage.

Named as the city of 401 deities, Ifè is home to many worshippers of these
deities and is where they are routinely celebrated through festivals.
