This place is really interesting and a good chance to show Cabo Verde history to visitors.

This was a prison until 1974, when Cape Verde declared its independence from Portugal. Earlier it was used for Portuguese prisoners against the dictatorship in Portugal and later for fighters from the colonies against the Portuguese control.

A place for those who care for Portuguese History before the 25 April Revolution. It should be a well taken cared museam but it's only a place of (bad) memories. A personal special place for me.
You can reach it by taking one of the local transportation Hilux at Tarrafal; or you can walk (if you like!)
