Lovers of old Portuguese architecture will enjoy visiting Cidade Alta, considered one of the most beautiful quarters in the capital. Walk around the streets adorned with elegant buildings, and soak in the colonial architecture.

Visit the local church and museum to find out more about the capital's history. See Cidade Alta and all Luanda has to offer by arranging your trip with our Luanda online holiday maker.
