Visually most impressive is the fantastic Pico Cão Grande, but even more amazing is the unique montane rainforest in both main islands. Here live hundreds of species not met anymore else in the world.

This small African country has also some outstanding architectural landmarks, to some extent it even resembles a reserve of historical Portuguese colonial architecture.
