Situated in the south of the island of Santiago, Praia City Hall can be found in the Plato area of the city. The City Hall was built in the early part of the 20th century and has been remarkably well maintained, remaining the centrepiece of the city.
Located in the main square, it is a popular stop on guided tours of Praia. Nowadays, it is mostly used for meetings and workshops, but it is still a popular stop for tourists who want to marvel at the beauty of the architecture of the building. Walking tours often call at this building, where the knowledgeable guide explains its history.
Close to the City Hall, there are various shops and places to eat. The local park is very restful, offering you the chance to sit on a bench and gaze up at the buildings. Vendors are there to sell everything from coco water to ice cream, ensuring you are properly refreshed.
