In the historic district of São Filipe, a single-storey house with a large courtyard built in the 1820 s. A place of residence, then a commercial establishment, a carpentry and finally a cinema, Casa da Memoria has become a cultural space since 2001, hosting in three main rooms an exhibition covering certain aspects of the history of the island and of São Filipe. The furniture and objects exhibited belong to families in Fogo. The large inner courtyard allows for various cultural activities. In an appendix, a specialized library with books and documents in different languages, on Cape Verde and Fogo Island, provides visitors and students with an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the country's history and culture. Really interesting and remarkable initiative.
