The Cape Verde Islands are located in the mid-Atlantic Ocean some 300 miles off the west coast of Africa. In 1462, Portuguese settlers arrived at Santiago and founded Ribeira Grande (now Cidade Velha)--the first permanent European settlement in the tropics. Mindelo on the isle of São Vicente is Cape Verde's cultural capital and has, by far, the most attractive city centre in the Cape Verde Islands with charming colonial buildings, cobbled streets, and numerous cafés and restaurants.
