Cruises from Maputo
Maputo, a port city on the Indian Ocean, is the capital and largest city of Mozambique. The centre of many cultures - the Bantu and Portuguese cultures dominate, but the influence of Arab, Indian, and Chinese cultures is also felt - it is often referred to as ‘The Land of Smiles’. It has some beautiful beaches such as Catembe and Ponta d'Ouro, and is also home to a plethora of landmarks. During its five centuries of colonisation the city has gained priceless wonders of Portuguese architecture.
Interestingly, most of the note-worthy buildings are former colonial administrative buildings. The Municipal Palace is one of the greatest gems of colonial architecture in Maputo.
