In the heart of the plateau and old town this pleasant little square is a peaceful place to sit in and wander around. There are plenty of benches and a small café with some outside seating. There are areas of cacti, trees and bushes, a statue and a fountain.

Nice place downtown Praia, cleaned and green! Impossible to miss, as all the roads are passing near by.

Pity the fountain isn't operating, but then water's at a premium. (Which kind of makes what I assume are the shallow water ditches running round the outside - which are easy to lose your footing in if you're not careful! - pretty pointless.) Some nice seating and landscaping, and pretty buildings around. Popular among locals. Expect to find people selling stuff and kids playing an impromptu game of football.

A stroll around the square is a must to see the locals go by, superb plantations and surrounded by colonial houses. People watching at its best. There is a small cafe in the middle if the square as well.

It's the main square of the Plateau, surrounded by the most important buildings.
Interesting to visit and discover the history of Cape Verde.

I congratulate those who posted the photos for making the square look bigger and more interesting than it is. It's scacely the size of a footballl pitch and the statue is tiny, albeit historic. The restaurant is an Oasis in the desert that is Praia, and provided us with something to do after 7pm which is not easy to find in Praia. The staff were wonderful I think they shared our pain.

Everybody visiting the Platô, the most historical and interesting part of Praia will also pass by the city's biggest square, the Praça Alexandre Albuquerque. The place is surrounded by some of the cities most important buildings. At the southern end of the square is the bust of the name-giver, former governor of the Cape Verde's (end of the 19th century): Alexandre Albuquerque.

At the northern end of this Praça starts the Avenida 5 de Julho, the pedestrianised 'Rua Pedonal' and definitely the most interesting street of the 'Platô'.

It is one of the nicest square in town. Located on the Plateau just next to the pedestrian street. It is nice to sit here and chill and look at local life following its course. It is quite big and has lots of benches and trees. There is also a cafe where you can have a drink or snack and that is open all day and in the evening.
