Description

The Harbor at Mindelo is the location of Porto Grande and the ferry route that connects São Vicente with neighboring islands. Until the independence of the Republic of Cape Verde in 1975, the docks at Mindelo (frame left) had been allowed to be run down and were unable to accommodate modern vessels. Modernization of Porto Grande was significant move for the national economy, as it is one of two vital ports in Cape Verde.
