“The Museum of Natural History initially a dependency of the Commercial and Industrial School created in 1911, became Provincial Museum in 1913. Having changed several times of facilities, it has been since 1933 in a Neo-Manueline style building built by the City Hall. It is one of the landmarks of the city.

“It is the largest botanical garden in Mozambique and a pleasant place to stroll during the hottest hours of the day, as the gigantic treetops of the garden create an oasis of shade and tranquility for the workers and tourists who pass by. É o maior jardim botânico de Moçambique e um lugar bastante agradável para passear durante as horas mais quentes do dia, já que as gigantescas copas das árvores do jardim criam um oásis de sombra e tranquilidade para os trabalhadores e turistas que por ali passam. ”

“This is an institution! One of the oldest restaurants in town and the only one that serves dinner up until 2am! They are famous for the chicken Piri Piri but I go there for the "prego no prato" ;) ”

“Our Fish Market. This is a place where you can buy fish and sea food and cook at home or you can choose your fish and sea food and have it done there. It is not an economic place but it is a whole experience going there. Be patient with the guys that are going to harasse you trying to sell you something.”
