Pelourinho (Cidade Velha)

Erected in 1512 or 1520, this is perhaps the oldest monument in Cape Verde. It was a symbol of colonial power and of slavery, as rebellious slaves were punished publicly on it.

Cidade Velha

Cape Verde
Cidada Velha is a city on the island of Santiago, Cape Verde. It is the oldest European city in the Tropics. This is an easy half-day trip from Praia although there probably won't be enough interest to keep you there any longer. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2009.
