    Porto Novo, Cabo Verde

    With towering peaks, agricultural terraces and palm trees swaying against a backdrop of verdant fields, the island of Santo Antão at first glance resembles Southeast Asia or perhaps mountainous Peru. Discovered and colonized by the Portuguese, the island—part of the 10-island country of Cape Verde—has European roots, and a claim as the first European outpost in the tropics. Explore the main street to see the harbor, old mansions, a small church and markets selling fresh fish and goat cheese.
