Santiago is the largest of the ten volcanic islands of Cape Verde archipelago in the central Atlantic Ocean. It is located 570 kilometres off the coast of West Africa (and the city of Dakar in Senegal). The highest point is Pico da Antónia at 1394m. Historically it featured in the transcontinental slave trade, was captured by Francis Drake, attacked by French pirates, and colonised by the Portuguese. The capital is Praia (pop. 135,000) on the south coast, a city spread out over plateaus and valleys. It is the island’s ferry port, and base for one of the islands’ four international airports, fishing and tourism industries.

Santiago is Cape Verde’s most productive land – mostly corn, but also bananas, oranges, sugarcane, coffee, and castor beans. The port exports coffee, sugar cane, and tropical fruits. The main reason for visiting Cape Verde is the spectacular natural scenery, and you can rent a vehicle to see it. As you travel inland the arid slopes give way at higher elevations to verdant hills and jungle, with jagged peaks across the skylines. Attractions in Praia include: Albuquerque Square, the old city hall, the Presidential Palace, the Ethnographic Museum, and the old Jaime Mota Barracks.

Ten kilometres to the west of Praia is Cidade Velha with World Heritage Listed 17th C building remnants. You can go up a steep hill to Fortaleza Real de São Filipe. If you visit in February, everywhere is evident Cape Verde Carnival – fancy costumes, no inhibitions. April in Praia sees the Kriol Jazz Festival. Independence (from Portugal) Day is held July 5. The languages are Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole, but young locals speak English. Seafoods are popular. Incidentally, Santiago was the first stop for the HMS Beagle with Charles Darwin.
