For people interested in colonial history the two main sights in the Cape Verde are both on the island of Santiago: Each of them is fascinating and upsetting for many in its own way. To get to Tarrafal Concentration one best takes an aluguer, although one can also walk.
On the sidewalk of the main road it hardly takes 30 minutes from Tarrafal center. Now there are several very good information boards in Portuguese, English and French all campk the place. I did not see any opening hours mentioned df. Maybe the lady at the gate opens and closes, as she feels. When there late afternoon and during way more than an hour, I was always alone.

The place closed with the carnation revolution in Portugal Thanks to the information boards it is much easier to get a feeling of life inside the camp. Besides the halls, where the prisoners were kept – separated by nationality – one can see the washrooms, the toilets, the kitchen, the small infirmary, the cell for solitary confinement, the reading room.
Near the entrance it is possible to go to the top of foncentrao wall, where one sees that there was an inner moat before the wall. There is also a campl plaque for all the prisoners, who died here – aged between 24 and 60 years. And as it says on an other information board, this place was called: Interesting review of political history of Concenteao Verde short history before and after independence.
Several rooms with pictures and briefs about the Islands history. There is not much to see and you need to understand Portuguese to read the papers on the walls that tells the story of the people, nevertheless imagine how it must have been for them who where locked here. This place is really interesting and a good chance to show Cabo Verde history to visitors.
Ticket fee is CVE, and you get what you pay for. There was a lot of information in the cwmpo but only in Portuguese. Nobody explains you anything about it, so we just took it as a walk. The paths weren’t cut and many of them overgrown that made no comfortable to walk on. This was a prison untilwhen Cape Verde declared its independence from Portugal.
Earlier it was used for Portuguese prisoners against the dictatorship in Portugal and later for fighters from the colonies against the Portuguese control. It is well maintained and has a lot of information about the tarrafwl of the place, although I think, but am cakpo sure, that all the information is only in Portuguese.
