Cape Verde Islands: Historical Visits

ByAndreas Heuijerjans

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
When I visited Santiago the first time in 2002, I had already read some travel guides and was interested to see all the beautiful places. After I did see many of these places and met many of its people, I became more and more interested in Cape Verde's special history. The Portuguese discovered the islands in 1460 and they were almost immediately colonized. From then on a particular mixing of people from West-Africa and Europe were the continuous ingredients of Cape Verde's culture. My personal interest is in reading and collecting primary accounts, accounts of people who tell directly from their own experiences. I would like to share with you a dozen of these accounts of famous and unknown travelers to the Cape Verde Islands, which stretch out over the period from 1498 to 1855. 2nd Ed: added journey by Jean Francois Michel (Dutch text). 3rd Ed: added text by Major A.B. Ellis of the 1st West India Regiment. 4th Ed: added journey by Georg Naporra (Dutch text).
