Ebute Metta is known for the production and sale of local food and cloths. It is a very old part of Lagos, many of its houses were built during the colonial era, using Brazilian architecture. The area includes the St Jude's church and school, African Salem church/school, and the Salvation Army church. The imposing Lisabi Hall leads to the Okobaba area with its lagoon background.
Ebute Metta has a number of notable buildings including the Nigerian Railway Corporation headquarters, post offices, St Paul's Catholic Church, the Oyingbo market, a major bus terminal, Foucos Secondary School (a school built by the former minister for education), St. Saviour's School, Junior Strides Academy, Ajayi Memorial Hospital, Ebute Metta Health Centre, and shops of all types. Ebute Metta is divided into two main areas: East and West.
Ebute Metta is a main access route linking mainland Lagos to the three main islands of Victoria, Ikoyi and Lagos Island. A major network of fly overs and access roads connects these various parts of Lagos as you drive through the Iddo peninsula.
