Ribeira Brava

Ribeira Brava gets its name from several ‘rough’ streams in the valley areas in the mountains to the west and also in the centre of the island of São Nicolau. Two mountains sandwich the village, Monte Fora to the north and Caleijão Mountains to the south. It serves as the center of business and trade for the surrounding areas and is one of the oldest towns in Cape. Ribeira Brava is famous for being the bedrock of Cape Verdean intellect in the 19th century as there you find a Seminary which was the center of higher education in the archipelago for many years.
