Sights of Luanda

Luanda, the capital city of Angola, is a kind of development center in the cultural sphere. It is in Luanda that most of the objects that are considered sights of African scale are located. Almost all the exhibits of the country can really be seen in the museums of the Angolan capital. Probably the most informative in this city is the Dundu Museum. Its halls contain the values ​​of ethnography and history.

Tourists pay great attention to two buildings: the Municipal Library and the National. All the works of art by most writers throughout Africa are stored on the shelves of these libraries. There is also a large collection of world literary masterpieces.

In the very center of the city of Luanda, such sights as the Church of the Madonna of Nazareth, the Jesuit Church, the temple of the followers of the Carmelites – the Carmelites attract attention.

Ordinary walks around Luanda are interesting because almost every street has buildings dating back to different centuries. Just to walk around the city means to study its history and features of architecture.

San Miguel
The vast majority of all the architectural treasures of the capital of Angola are concentrated near San Miguel – both the castle and the fortress at the same time. Today, San Miguel has been completely refurbished and is now a Historical Museum. From the 17th century, fragments of the walls of two large forts have been preserved.

You can relax here in both parts of the city: in the upper and lower. And each of them is in itself one gigantic attraction. Relatively conditionally, the city is divided into a terrace less than 10 meters high. At the top of the city you can see medieval beauty: green mansions with charming and very beautiful turrets and small but cozy pavilions and verandas. A huge government institution, the Parliament building, was also built very close by. Next to it is the palace of the Bishop and the President of Luanda. Almost all visitors are interested in the main Cathedral in Upper Luanda, more precisely, its interior decoration. Outside, it looks so unusual and attractive that tourists want to see what is inside it and in the seminary with it. The University of Angola is also distinguished by its extraordinary beauty.

When you walk, look at the Academy of Music. When you enter inside, you will immediately hear small excerpts from classical music. Small theaters seem to be scattered all over Luanda. They are not even professional, rather amateur. But even despite this fact, they glorify the city with interesting performances and high-quality acting. And almost always they gain full halls for performances.

Savannah
But the sights of this city are not only architectural, but also natural. Savannah is the main value. This is the nearest forest, pleasantly surprising with its originality. An experienced guide will always show you here both herbivores and carnivores of this natural area. Looking around, you can spot several dozen species of monkeys at once. In addition to mammals, birds are also present in the savannah. Moreover, they, as a rule, have a bright color, and sometimes make outlandish sounds.

Luanda is considered one of those very few cities in the country of Angola, where almost all architectural sights have not undergone any changes, transformations and restructuring. A thorough examination of them will add to your memories a lot of unforgettable, vivid impressions, greatly enrich your horizons and those who came with you. And no matter what value (historical or natural) you look at, each of them will definitely be remembered for many years.
