  • You can go through the few metres up, just at the end of it you have to lower little thing, right in the center of town, it's worth to know penalty but is really small

  • I couldn't get in, I was scared but worth knowing the cave at least on the outside. The group entered and like it, looks great because it has output from the side.

  • Simple yet sacred cave. Very close to the city centre. Inside the cave has the Holy so worth the visit. One can also climb on top of the cave to enjoy the view of the city.

  • I love entering the cave and come out the other side and climb on top of the cave and see the square from the top. Very good observing the sky during the night. Right in the center of town and front has military police and banco Itaú.

Where to stay in Sao Thome das Letras

Welcoming bed and breakfasts abound in Sao Thome Das Letras, with a good range of options for most budgets. The city sprawls out over the mountain’s peak, so it’s wise to decide which attractions you’d like to be closest to when looking for your accommodations. Staying in the center is a good option, as you’ll be close to some main attractions and landmarks. The jungle and cave systems lie further out, however, so if those are your focus, consider staying on the edge of town for convenience.
