Bissau

Churches · Flea Markets · Government Buildings
Looking out from the Geba River across the Atlantic Ocean, the little-known capital of Bissau offers the authentic experience of a West African fishing port. A Portuguese colony until 1974, remnants of the period and decade-long war that proceeded it are evident across the city, seen in its abandoned, bombed-out palace, colonial houses, and fortifications. Take time to learn this city's turbulent history and meet its people across the lively markets and operational fishing port. Use our Guinea-Bissau sightseeing planning app to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Bissau.
