Experience Capoeira in Praia
I have been practicing capoeira for about an year now. I participated in a capoeira festival here in Praia so I know teachers and capoeiristas from all different schools. I go to class on a weekly basis. My goal is to bring new people in the communities and meet locals and introduce new capoeira to the communities as well. My goal is to take people to places where it is hard to find here. If you would like to join, contact me and we can arrange to head to class together. Best!

Cidade velha excursion
Im this tour we gonna anderstand the history of cape verd, and see the beatifull constrution build by portuguese im century 14. The island of Santiago was discovered by António da Noli, a Genoese in Portuguese service, in 1460. Da Noli settled at Ribeira Grande with his family members and Portuguese from Algarve and Alentejo in 1462. The settling conditions were good due to the abundance of water from the river Ribeira Grande, which gave it an advantage over the other settlement on Santiago, Alcatrazes. The settlement became a key port of call for Portuguese colonisation towards Africa and South America. In the 16th and 17th centuries, it was a centre of maritime trade between Africa, the Cape, Brazil and the Caribbean. Due to its proximity to the African coast, it was an essential platform for the trade of enslaved persons.
