Nampula - Gateway to the intriguing islands

Nampula - third largest city in Mozambique and the province seat.

A gentle first stop for many, maybe for the first time visiting Africa, with wide and spacious streets and lush surroundings, Nampula offers all you need, and in a slow welcoming way.

The few sights to be seen includes the beautiful Carheral of Nossa Senhora de Fatima, The National Ethnography Museum and the Sunday morning Craft Market.

As a Monday keep most museums in the world closed for us we did the cathedral and went visiting a local railway station planning a alternative and adventurous way of getting here, before picking our fellow travellers on the airport. 

For evenings Nampula offer many different restaurants, with tasty Portuguese inspiered meals.

Today Ihla de Mozambique is our destination, a 3 km long and 500 m wide intriguing island with all of its culture and history...
