The Island of Mozambique has a special place in the history of Mozambique. Its legend, almost mythical, has much to do with the built heritage, unique on the Mozambican coast, and with the beauty of the place and its people.
This image remained untouched after the independence of the Country. Successive Mozambican governments have been promoting some actions, most important of which was the classification of the Island as a World Heritage Site in 1991.
Due to its geographical location and its importance in international trade routes, Ilha de Moçambique was elevated to the town on January 19, 1763, and on September 17, 1818, it was granted the status of a city, having the status of first capital of the colony of Mozambique.
The exhibition will be available from Friday, August 24 until Wednesday, September 5 2018 in Maputo at Galeria Kulungwana and from Thursday, September 13 to Wednesday, October 31 2018 at Ilha de Moçambique feitoria
