Pictures of selected places in Madagascar

Madagascar is very much a land of villages, though there are several towns and cities of substantial size. Below are population estimates for Madagascar's largest population centers -- please bear in mind that these are only estimates. Some sources peg the capital's population closer to 3 million than 1.7 million.
