CIDADE VELHA - HISTORYIn 1462, Portuguese settlers arrived at

Santiago and founded Ribeira Grande (now Cidade Velha)--the first permanent European

settlement city in the tropics. In the 16th century, the archipelago prospered from the

transatlantic slave trade. Pirates occasionally attacked the Portuguese settlements. Sir Francis Drake sacked Ribeira Grande in 1585. After a French

attack in 1712 under the command of the Capitaine Lesseps, the city declined in

importance relative to Praia, which became the capital in 1770.
