Inhambane City is steeped in history with the city being the southerly most trading port in Africa used by the Arabs. Vasco Da Gama landed in Inhambane in 1534 and the influence can clearly be seen in the architecture including the cathedrals and old colonial Portugese architecture. This mixture of European and African culture can be found in the local markets, making this a fascinating town to browse around. A number of restaurants in and around Inhambane offer a variety of dining experiences too.
