Home - Guinea-Bissau - Bissau

Bissau is the capital city of Guinea-Bissau, on the coast of West Africa. It's near the point where the Geba River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Bissau Velho, the old city center, is filled with decaying Portuguese colonial buildings. Nearby, Fortaleza d’Amura is an old fort still used by the country's military. Up the road, the war-damaged former Presidential Palace has a neoclassical facade.
