Starting from $314.05 AUD / Adult
Explore Angola's history and culture on an exploration of Luanda. After Angola was freed from colonial rule, it suffered a devastating Civil War. Today, see Luanda's renaissance, as the citizens tap into its wealth of diamonds and oil. Begin your exploration of Luanda with a scenic drive along Marginal Bay. See the beautiful Igreja de Senhora de Nazaré and National Monument. Continue to the Iron Palace, designed by Gustave Eiffel, the designer of the Eiffel Tower. See the Gothic Los Remédios church, celebrated as one of the city's most beautiful and well-preserved. Next, visit the Angola National Museum of Anthropology and view art, sculptures, tools, weaponry, jewelry, clothing, and musical instruments. Then, see the San Miguel Fort and the Agostinho Neto Mausoleum, rumored to be the gravesite of Angola's first president. Finally, visit the Cidade Alta, a suburb of colonial buildings, the Presidential Palace, and the Catholic Church.
