Located on a promontory overlooking the coast, the capital of the volcanic island of Fogo has a shot at the title of the most beautiful city in Cape Verde! Small in size but very steep, São Filipe retains the most homogeneous architectural ensemble of the archipelago, and in particular many sobrados: masters' residences once inhabited by Portuguese settlers. Narrow cobbled streets lead to small squares planted with trees and flowers, which are popular meeting places for city dwellers.
