Note really an 'attraction' more a curiosity on the way through. Communications hub overlooking Espargos. Narrow alpine style road up to the top, but as you'll likely be going there on an 'island trip' it shouldn't be an issue. Good views of the real world below. If you intend going on the 'walk' around the perimeter wall of the (off... More

You can see here what the real Cape Verde is like. Poor and Marsh-like. On the other hand it is worth a visit!

This is the highest point in Espargos (the main city of Sal), you will find a nice view of all the island the city. The road is a little narrow, so you should make sure that there isn't anyone coming on the opposite direction.

Monte Curral is a large hill in the middle of the town of Espargos, Island of Sal, Cape Verde. From the top of the hill you can see quite a distance in all directions. If you take an island day tour, you'll likely stop here. It's still an operational communications post with men guarding the facilities on top. A nice... More
