Praia

Trip Planner Africa  /  Cape Verde  /  Santiago  /  Praia
The capital and largest city of Cabo Verde, Praia represents one of the most renowned commercial centers in Africa. One of the first European tropical settlements, the city has transformed from global slave trade hub to a melting pot of ethnic groups. Most historic tourist attractions of Praia display centuries of Portuguese influence on the city's architecture, with numerous cathedrals, monuments, and museums standing on the central fort-like plateau overlooking the ocean. With pleasant, warm weather year-round, a vacation in Praia also promises relaxation on its beaches, plus in water activities like diving and snorkeling. Praia is in Santiago. Use our international travel planner: Praia and all its delights await.
