The island of Santo Antão is a cross between Morocco and the Himalayas. With immense volcanic walls, towering green peaks, and perfectly farmed terraced valleys, this island is relatively untouched by tourism. Porto Novo began as a fishing village, and was only recognised as a city in 2005. Explore the colonial history of the capital of Santo Antão and maybe sample the famous ‘grogue’, Cape Verde rum.
