Although São Tomé and Príncipe is very small country, it has amazing scenery and some exciting landmarks.

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 architecture landmarks, to some extent it even resembles a reserve of historical Portuguese colonial architecture.

Some of the most fascinating and awe inspiring natural monuments are waterfalls, or locations where a river abruptly changes its elevation.
