Luanda is the capital of Angola. A port city on the west coast of Southern Africa. A promenade known as the Marginal runs alongside Luanda Bay. Above all, the Marginal promenade is a great place for a nice stroll.
At one end of the promenade is the port, which is famous for its clock tower. It is the most prestigious street in the city and where many of its luxury hotels can be found.
Nearby is the well preserved 16th century Fortress of São Miguel. However, the fortress is now home to the Museum of the Armed Forces. Chiefly, the fort has ideal views of the harbour and the Ilha do Cabo. A long peninsula in the bay that’s home to beaches, bars and restaurants.
The fortress was built in 1576 by the Portuguese. It used to be a holding place for slaves being sent to Brazil. Furthermore, in 1996 the fortress became a UNESCO World Heritage site. Nowadays, it has become one of the most popular places to visit in the city.
Whatever you choose to do in Angola, it will be a unique and memorable experience of a lifetime, with a Guides4me guide, who will look after you and by the end of the trip you’ve made a best friend.
