São Filipe (town / Fogo island)

São Filipe (town / Fogo island) – this is the main town on this island, located on the southwestern part of Fogo island, where its airport is also located. With a number of Portuguese colonial structures still found here, Fogo’s volcano is the main attraction here (drawing in a number of eco-tourists who are also visiting other parts of Cape Verde). Some expat Cape Verdeans (who live in Europe and North America) occasionally visit as well. Due to the volcanic soil, there is some agricultural activity here, even coffee growing and wine production.
