Best of Sao Vicente Guide

Print this guide 
The skies of Sao Vicente are dramatically pierced by the cocoa peaks of mountain ranges. The island is considered the birthplace of many styles of Cape Verdean music, and revelers gather to howl at the moon during the annual beach music festival in Baía das Gatas. With its gorgeous colonial-inspired architecture, the harbor city of Mindelo is perfect for self-guided walking tours, particularly the Praça Nova quarter and the Rua Libertadores d'Africa.
