Arrive early into the capital of the Cape Verde Islands, Praia. This is the largest and busiest city benefitting from excellent weather all year round. It’s largely untouched with plentiful resort beaches, vast rock faces and original Portuguese architecture. The Municipal Market, with its vast fish market, is fascinating, as are the well-preserved Governor’s Palace and City Hall - both attractive examples of Portuguese-style architecture.
