July 5th is recognized as Independence Day for Cape Verde. After being colonized by Portugal from 1460 to 1975, the African archipelago has made several strides, but it also has challenges ahead. From the early 2000s onwards, the tourism sector became the most important economic activity. With breathtaking landscapes, beautiful beaches and amazing local cuisine, Cape Verde attracts visitors from Europe and other parts of the world.
