The drive from Praia to Assomada is 1 1/2 hours of spectacular views when jagged clifftops come into view.
An attractive town at the heart of Santiago famous for its museum and market. The market of Assomada is one of the largest on the island, crammed with agricultural products and crafts. It is the central collection and distribution point for products produced throughout the surrounding countryside. ( You can see some of the wares in next story of Tarrafal)
