Important as a historical and architectural landmark, Igreja da Nossa Senhora do Populo dates back to the 17th century, when Benguela was still an important slave port on the Angolan coast.

Step inside to see the church's wooden pulpit, reportedly the only one in Angola built in the Rococo style.

  • Visit! A symbol of Benguela. Example, as the current MPLA headquarters in Benguela, of an architecture marked by the sometimes antagonistic symbols that are part of the history of the city.
