Hotel Avenida

Located: Island of Santiago

This locally managed central hotel is situated in the heart of Assomada, which has the largest internal-based population. It’s seventeen bedrooms are all en suite, fully furnished, clean and tidy. The hotel has a roof top restaurant and coffee shop, and views of the square from some of the bedrooms. Some bedrooms are a little darker than others, but overall, you will enjoy full access to the town of Assomada.

The culture centre displays many local features, including crafts and a historical background of the town itself. The open market is time well spent, Wednesdays and Saturdays being the main days. Produce is bought from the local countryside in the hope of good sales. The tall tree is also a local landmark. A nice hotel to stay and explore the town.
