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.”
It was my last day at this lovely island Santiago-Praia. I had seen some streetart in Praia but people told me I had to see the streetart in an other neighborhoods also, so I am really glad to came in contact with Judith & Jair on my last day! Judith and Jair are so fine en lovely!
You feel so welcome with there positive energie en their good smiles. You have to meet them!
The tour was so great. We walked around Judith, Jair, Gelson, Eliane and her daughter Elise.
They know the neighborhood very well, also the people and the lovely story’s behind every detail of the neighborhood and the paintings #streetart. Also it was really nice to stop over at some places where you can eat & meet the local adults and children who are living there.
I felt so good! After the tour we made a stop at Gelson’s place for a lovely diner. Was great!
Gelson and Eliane are real creators, handmade art what you also have to see.
Book the tour it’s really nice??
Thanks you Judith, Jair, Gelson & Eliane for this positive energy en smiles? that I brought home with me✨
Judith is a nice tour guide and has close contact with the locals, so you will have a unique experience. She has a lot of knowledge of the culture and is very flexible in planning. Had a beautiful evening during the art tour, where the evening ended at a local’s home. Obrigada pa tudo Judith
For our last day in Praia after one month in Cabo Verde, a friend recommended us to stay at Judith’s place. That was one of our best stay in this wonderful country! Even if sadly Judith was not here at this time, Gelson took care of us so well! He improvised a tour in the city center and then in his quarter which is the one with the most street art. Even the time was short, we learned so much about capverdian culture, history and way of life! He even invited us in his house, presented us to his family and shared some food and drinks with us!
He also showed us his art whis is really amazing!
Then we spent the evening together as well, listening to all sort of capverdian music! What an incredible time we had!
We appreciated so much his company! Gelson is such an interesting human being with a huge heart and always happy to share all his experience with us.
The day after we had a delicious couscous for the breakfast with Gelson.
This whole experience was the best way to end our wonderful travel and I wish we had known Gelson and Judith earlier!
I totally recommend Terra Terra Tours for their humanity, their kindness and for the authentic experience they can offer you!
Hope to see you again soon guys!
Amazing experience with Judith & Jair. Street Art Tour was not only about taking pictures of beautiful painted walls , it was about sharing, discovering the soul and energy of the neighbourhood. Totally recommend it.
