Description
The first cathedral built on the West African coast, at the initiative of Brother Francisco da Cruz, third Bishop of Cabo Verde. 

It began to be built in 1556, in a prime location, overlooking the ocean, getting completed only in 1700 due to the crisis in the clerical establishment, and also in its relationship with the monarchy. 

It is a cathedral characteristic of late Renaissance composed of a ship and a double transept. The crossing of the transept marks the separation between the nave and the choir is narrower. 

The sanctuary and the two bell towers that framed the front door are no longer visible, but the remaining large side walls, allow you to enjoy, this grand project. In its building stones were used from Portugal.
