  • UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The Republic of Cape Verde is located on an archipelago in the Macaronesia ecoregion of the North Atlantic Ocean, off the western coast of Africa. The previously uninhabited islands were discovered and colonized by the Portuguese in the fifteenth century, though the position of the Islands of the Blest, the longitude zero meridian of the ancient Geography of Marinos of Tyre and Ptolemy, agrees tolerably with Cape Verde. The country is named after Cap Vert (meaning Green Cape) in Senegal, the westernmost point of continental Africa.
