Sao Filipe

Trip Planner Africa  /  Cape Verde  /  Fogo  /  Sao Filipe
The second-oldest town in Cape Verde, Sao Filipe enchants visitors on their San Filipe holiday with intricately decorated colonial architecture and rich, black volcanic sands. Founded in the 16th century on the volcanic island of Fogo, the town maintains much of its Portuguese architecture, with many streets leading to the center of the Old Town. From here, you can look out across the dark sands of the town's main beach toward the Atlantic Ocean. You'll likely want to take a daily stroll through the winding streets, which house everything from market bazaar to cathedral, as nearly everything is within walking distance. Sao Filipe is in Fogo. Plan the details of your Sao Filipe holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Cape Verde trip planner .
