Dona Maria Pia Lighthouse
Built to provide safe passage for the ships entering the port of Praia, the octagonal lighthouse perched on the cliff, the "Farol da Ponta Temerosa" on the southernmost point of the island of Santiago, defies every surf after more than 130 years , It's worth taking a walk, and if you're lucky, the tower is even open, so you can have a great view of the surrounding area.
Praca Alexandre Albuquerque
Praca Alexandre Albuquerque, also known as Praça 12 de Setembro, was built in 1826 and is located in the south of the Platô district. He has been named after the Portuguese governor Caetano Alexandre de Almeida e Albuquerque since 1975, who ruled from 1869 to 1876. The rectangular square of about 7,200 square meters is covered with trees, mainly mango and kapok. On the square next to a fountain are two monuments, a monument to Alexandre Albuquerque and another for Serpa Pinto. On its east side are the cathedral and the Palace of Justice, on the south side the town hall and on the west and north side commercial buildings.
5 de Julho Avenue
Stroll along this historical street to see pastel hue buildings, local shops and cafes.
Cabo Santa Maria
See one of the country's most popular shipwrecks at Cabo Santa Maria, where the unfortunate vessel ran aground on a barren beach. Take a 4x4 ride across the cobbled tracks to the site, where a corroded Spanish cargo ship slowly crumbles among the ocean waves. Besides examining the gradually dissipating wreckage, you can also take a walk along the shoreline. Look for small stacks of rocks left by tourists who've cast wishes out over the ocean, and make your own little contribution.
