    Seen a large variety of painted artworks on walls of houses in a developing neighbourhood. Have also visited a neighbourhood collective that organises all sort of projects for local residents. In the late afternoon we got invited by a local family to join them in their home for dinner. What a great surprise. The food was amazing and was great to enjoy the local hospitality with such friendly faces.

    The street art tour was a stunning walk through the streets of a rough neighborhood in development. Beautiful grafitti that is easy to photograph while we were watching the sun set. The walk finished with a BBQ at Gelson’s house (member of the crew) and his children and wife made us feel super welcome! We enjoyed the lovely food on their rooftop terrace and watched Praia turn into a city that does’nt sleep. Would do it again next visit!

    Wherever I travel, one of my goals is to walk local neighborhoods and see how communities express themselves through street art. After not having much luck on my own, I was recommended Terra Terra Tours and I regret not knowing them from the start of my Cape Verde Experience. Judith and Jair took me under their wing and showed me this incredible neighborhood in Praia called Achade Grande Frente. The art was incredible and the sunset was stunning but it was the energy and spirit of these two that made the day magical. It felt like old friends meeting up and seeing each other’s new lives and I learned so much in such a quick time. I highly highly recommend Terra Terra Tours for their knowledge of all things Cape Verde, their access to the world outside typical tourist paths, and their kindeness, generosity, and friendship.

    I loved to explore the local life of this neighbourhood loaded with amazing street art!
    Art can be found on every street corner and there’s so much livelihood in this neighbourhood.
    We stumbled upon a tiny little new restaurant that was about to start their business and we got to try the delicious homemade food!
    The tour ended with a dinner at Gelson’s house where I got to meet his amazing warm and lovely family. Here his son taught me a lot about Praia, Cabo Verde and its amazing history full of wonderful, strong people.

    “I had a few days to pass in Praia and didn’t know how to spend them. I’m so happy I chose to do a Street Art Tour with Terra Terra! I met up with my very capable guides at a roundabout and then we went on exploring a part of the city I don’t think I would have found on my own. We saw fantastic street art, one of my favourites was a house where the artist simply had used the exterior of the house to make it look like a face. The good thing about doing it on a guided tour was to get to know the story behind the different pieces of art. We also had dinner in a newly open local place where we were the first guests where I for the first time in my life had tuna kidney, and visited a local artist community. All in all this was a great tour that I really recommend and when I return to Praia I will book myself into maybe the Arts&Craft Tour that I didn’t have time to go on this time around.”
