Cemitério do Mindelo, Cape Verde

Cemitério do Mindelo is a graveyard located in Mindelo, on the island of Sao Vicente. While it is not your normal tourist attraction, it does draw many visitors from all around the world, on a weekly basis. This is in no small part thanks to the fact that Cemitério do Mindelo is the famous final resting place of Cesaria Evora, the Cape Verdean vocalist who was one of the most-loved artists the country has ever produced. So much so, that her image even featured on Cape Verde stamps and banknotes.

However, the rest of the Cemitério do Mindelo is also well worth a wander around if you have the time. The graves have been beautif maintained by family members and many of them feature gorgeous stonework and moving dedications.

Not too far from Mindelo’s centre, you can venture into the city after your visit and call in at one of the many eateries or bars.
