Praia culture, history, and sights

Praia has a character of its own and is steeped in Cape Verde history. The lively town center has a colorful market that is well worth a visit, and on a low hill nearby you can visit the fortress of Cidade Velha, built to deter pirates in the 17th and 18th centuries.
