Enjoy Praia culture & history

Praia has a character of its own. This attractive historic town is steeped in history. The lively town centre with the colourful local market is worth a visit. On a hill near the centre the massive fortress Cidade Velha is situated, built to deter pirates in the 17th and 18th century.
