Nestling in a beautiful bay is Mindelo, Cape Verde's cultural capital. Visitors come here to stroll through the colourful streets, admire the British- and Portuguese-inspired colonial buildings, and above all to enjoy its bars and restaurants that hold concerts on weekends. It is at carnival time that its sense of celebration is most evident, when Mindelo embraces a frenzy of sounds, rhythms and colours.
