The capital Praia is a bustling, vibrant city built over several plateaus. But head off into the interior and you’ll find mountain peaks and fertile valleys of manioc and banana.
If you only have one day on the island, then you should definitely visit the archipelago’s oldest settlement Cidade Velha, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2009.
Nowadays a charming village along the coast, the area attracts a lot of people, wanting to visit the fort which overlooks the village, the churches and the pelourinho a 16th-century pillory used to punish slaves.
The island’s second largest city Assomada should also not be missed, especially on a Saturday and Wednesday when the African market attracts a lot of locals and visitors alike. Here you can buy anything from chicken to furniture.
Lovely Tarrafal has sandy beaches and is the ideal base to relax or dive.
Recommended small travel company!
Great little company with friendly staff. Organisation of flights & accommodation very efficient. When problems arise they are helpful and very reasonable in their efforts to resolve them. We would definitely use them again for a return trip
