Silversea Expedition Cruises Nach PRAIA

PRAIA

The capital of the Cape Verde archipelago, Praia on Santiago Island might be in African in body, but it is European in soul. In fact, when the Portuguese colonised the islands in the 15th century they found no human inhabitants. Thus Cape Verdeans have evolved with a highly unique blend of European and African ancestry, conversing in a sing-song language of Creole, African dialect and Portuguese. The islands only gained independence in 1975 (after a 15-year war), so Portuguese influence is rife and to some, relatively recent. View more

At almost 300 miles off the coast of mainland west Africa, the remoteness of the islands has allowed the archipelago’s natural wildlife to flourish. Naturalists consider Cape Verde as a mini Galapagos, with many endemic species. That, along with astounding landscapes, warm climate and clear waters is reason enough to visit. Add the liveliest market in all of the islands and you’ll soon fall in love with Praia’s shabby grandeur. Originally named Praia de Santa Maria when it was first settled in 1615, the city is nation’s capital. The city is built on a plateau near the beach Santa Maria beach, the town centre still has monuments that attest to its rich history. Due to Santiago’s location between Africa, the soon-to-be-discovered America and Europe, Praia became a slave central for merchants returning to Europe. Buildings built for the dubious trade are still visible – including those with balconies overlooking the square where owners would negotiate the price of human property.

Exkursionen in PRAIA

History & Monuments of Praia

The town of Praia de Santa Maria appeared in 1615 when it settled on a plateau nearby a beach (Santa Maria beach). From the pier, depart via coach for the "plateau" which is the site of Praia's colonial town centre. Here, ancient buildings and monuments attest to its rich history.


Praia

Once in the old city centre, begin a short walking exploration making stops at the Post Office building and visiting the Municipal Market. Returning to the coach, travel six miles (10km) west of Praia to Cidade Velha, the original Portuguese settlement and the first city established in the West African region.


Cidade Velha

Upon arrival in Cidade Velha, take to the historic street on foot once again, led by your guide. Visit the impressive St. Felipe fortress situated prominently at the top of the town and discover the monuments to the slave trade. Listen as the guide proffers insight into the amazing history of this unique Old City, with its history as a slave trading centre between the three continents of Africa, Europe and America. Following your discovery here, begin the return to the ship.


Please note: This tour is a walking tour; extensive walking in Praia's town centre and Cidade Velha is required. Comfortable shoes are recommended. Local conditions may be challenging, therefore we urge flexibility and understanding as we visit these unique, and somewhat remote destinations.
