What to see in Praia

Praia, the capital of Cape Verde, is a lively coastal city perched on Santiago Island. Its charming blend of colonial architecture, vibrant markets and stunning beaches, like Quebra Canela, offer a taste of Cape Verdean culture. Praia is a gateway to the rich cultural and natural wonders of the archipelago.

The Plateau, often referred to as Plateau de Praia, is the heart of Praia and the historic district of the city. It's a charming area characterised by its colonial architecture, vibrant streets and a rich blend of Cape Verdean culture and heritage. Start your exploration at Praça Alexandre Albuquerque, a bustling square surrounded by colourful buildings and historical landmarks. Here, you'll find the Presidential Palace, a striking colonial-era building that adds an air of grandeur to the square. Nearby, the City Hall and the Nossa Senhora da Graça Church are also notable architectural gems.

Praia boasts a collection of stunning beaches where you can relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The city's coastal setting offers numerous opportunities for beachgoers to unwind and embrace the natural beauty of Cape Verde. Quebra Canela Beach is one of the most popular and easily accessible beaches in Praia. Its golden sands and calm waters make it an ideal spot for swimming, sunbathing or simply taking a leisurely stroll along the shore. Beachside cafes and bars offer refreshments and stunning sea views.

Cape Verdean culture is richly woven into the fabric of Praia, and one of the best ways to immerse yourself in this cultural tapestry is through music. The city is renowned for its vibrant music scene, featuring a fusion of African, European and Latin influences. Live music venues like Fogo Lounge, B.Leza Praia and Kebra Cabana offer the perfect settings to enjoy Cape Verdean music styles such as morna, coladeira, funaná and batuque. Talented local musicians often grace the stages, creating an atmosphere of rhythm and melody that's both captivating and unforgettable.
