Luanda

Culture to discover

1 Aug to 01 Aug
 
Considered a major business centre, the Angolan capital does not falls asleep and its rhythm is lively and contagious. Luanda is in great development since the end of the Civil War, and has so much to live and explore. In addition to its vibrant life and vast culture, it is also full of natural beauty, beaches and adventure.


Still with some architectural remains of the Portuguese Colonial Age, Luanda enchants for its uniqueness. In the city, visit the Museum of Slavery and the Fortaleza de S. Miguel, with great historical representation of the country. Go to the ruins of the Forte de S. Pedro da Barra - declared National Monument in 1932 - and the Forte de S. Francisco do Penedo. Discover the fauna and flora of this region at the Natural History Museum, and visit the charming Church of Nossa Senhora dos Remedios, Cathedral of Luanda. Then enjoy the sunset in the magical Baia, and dine in one of the many restaurants located in there - in this area there is no lack of entertainment and fun!
 
To make the most of your time, get out of town and see the wonders of the surroundings: to relax, go to the Island of Mussulo, a few kilometres away from the centre. Its beaches are of fine white sand and plenty of coconut trees. Also make sure to go to the beautiful Cabo Ledo's beaches, inserted in the Kissama's Natural Park - enjoy a safari in this park - and finally, get marvelled with the sights of the Miradouro da Lua, in the north side of the park, a set of cliffs that resemble a lunar passage and complete this magical setting!
