As Ilhas do Cabo Verde are 10 and make up the Republic of Cape Verde, situated in the Atlantic, off the west coast of Africa. The deserted volcanic islands were discovered in the 15th century by the Portuguese explorers, who colonized them and fused the first settlements in the tropics. The islands underwent a marked development process in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when they became an important destination on the slave trade route. Nowadays, the Republic of Cape Verde is one of the most stable democracies in Africa and receives more and more tourists from all over the world every year.
