"São Vicente, the island of music" Ilha de São Vicente by bambino36

Ilha de São Vicente Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 15 photos

The famous names of the cape-verdian music, Cesária Évora, Bana, Luís Morais, Chico Serra.....,
are originally from this island.

Mindelo, the capital, has a unique way of life. I've been there during carnival and I realized the carnival at Mindelo is one of the most important events in this group of islands.

    Lovely architecture...I wouldn't have expected such a building.

    Interesting photos of this off-the-beaten path location! Great tip on the 'eagle' statue. I was very impressed with the replica statue of Cabral's airplane along the Lisbon waterfront at Belem!!

    I had my plane back home just one week before Cesaria Evora was back in Mindelo and gave a concert. So I still have to do with her CDs.
