Mindelo - description of the city:

Mindelo city id disposed in the north-west part of the island of San Vicente, in the natural harbor of Porto Grande Bay (underwater volcano crater). Mindelo is one of the large main towns in Cape Verde. It is famous for its huge deep-water port, which was build in the early XX century and still serves as a sea gate of the country.

Mindelo have long had a strategic importance for Cape Verde. Once the city was barely took the capital status from Praia. Even now Mindelo behind the scenes competes with the capital-in any case, the city holds the title of the tourist capital city for a long time. Fans of sea fishing come here for a big marlin or barracuda, and surfers-for the big wave.

It should be noted that the wind in Mindelo, as everywhere in Cape Verde, blows almost all year round. No wonder that island of archipelago are poetically called «woven out of the wind». Due to the Atlantic breeze there is not so hot. The best time to travel to Mindelo considered the period from July to November: this time the weather is warmest.

Mandole`s neighborhood is quite picturesque, despite of the aridity of this area. According to traditional concern of local residence about the vegetation of the city every citizen has to plant one tree (since decree of 1873d year). Since then, the habit of cultivating green areas among the local population is in their blood.

Mindless os considered as one of the most beautiful cities in Cape Verde. It is impossible to remain indifferent, looking at it with wide streets of the colonial architecture of the XIX century and the traditional houses, painted multicolored pastel.

The main sign of the city is considered to be a stunningly sleek snow-white Presidential Palace. Interestingly, the Mindelo City Hall and Parliament of Sao Vicente island are much more modest- as ordinary two-story mansion with a clock. Always worth to look at the Tower of Bethlehem- the exact replica of Lisbon. The most interesting example of modern architecture in the city considered a building of a beach club Johnny Walker.
