São Tiago  (Santiago)

São Tiago or Santiago is the island where we are living and working.


Santiago is the largest and main island. It measures 991 km ² and has about 250,000 inhabitants.

The Cape Verdean capital, Praia, capital of the archipelago, is Santiago.

Santiago is said to be much like Africa, through green valleys and mountainous areas.


On the east coast are banana plantations.The island is of volcanic origin. The highest mountain is the      

Pico da Antonia (1394 m).The mountainous center of the island is relatively rich in rainfall and therefore the most fertile area of the archipelago.


The ancient capital Cidade Velha, near Praia, has become a tourist attraction.
