Monte Verde, Mindelo

4.0
#1 of 18 in Things to do in Mindelo
Monte Verde, the tallest mountain on the island of Sao Vicente, remains part of a natural park. Although locals once grew green beans and corn on these slopes, today the mountain features limited vegetation, its reddish-brown look making for great photo opps. Standing 750 m (2,460 ft) tall, the mountain provides a view of the entire island, which looks especially photogenic on sunny days.

  • great view from the top. Crazy drive up there but we'll worth it. Passed a load of crazy fools walking up there.  more »
  • On our second day of three on the island of São Vicente we decided to negotiate a taxi tour of the island. We got a good price, a driver is very nice and almost all day. Our first stop was (almost) on top of Monte Verde, verde has little, and is quite cold and damp and serves as a meeting place and on his days off, when sites rise to the top and make barbecues and pic-nics and if they relieve the heat usually sen had more down in the city. We also saw networks to "catch" water, placed vertically on cement tanks that condense the moisture and make drain some water to the tanks. In practice some agriculture, mainly for animal feed. I advise you to take a jacket or sweater because the temperature difference is even accentuated. This tour took us to many interesting places, told several facts about the island and the population and recalled the "time of the Portuguese" and your primary teacher, Portuguese who keeps very good memories. For anyone interested I leave the contract of Mr. António: 9962691

  • Monte Verde is a must see if you happen to be in St.Vicente! It genuinely deserves more exposure. The view due to difference in altitudes is simply amazing.
  • An excellent lookout point, where we can have a great view of St. Vincent, with a climate that varies or changes in a few moments. Spectacular.
