Mindelo

Set around a moon-shaped port and ringed by barren mountains, Mindelo is Cabo Verde’s answer to the Riviera, complete with cobblestone streets, candy-coloured colonial buildings and yachts bobbing in a peaceful harbour. Around a bend is the country’s deepest industrial port, which in the late 19th century was a key coaling station for British ships and remains the source of the city’s relative prosperity.
