Angola Independence Day
November 11, 2016
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 11 of November, repeating indefinitely
Angola is a southern African nation whose varied terrain encompasses tropical Atlantic beaches, a labyrinthine system of rivers and Sub-Saharan desert that extends across the border into Namibia. The country’s colonial history is reflected in its Portuguese-influenced cuisine and its landmarks including Fortaleza de São Miguel, built by the Portuguese in 1576 to defend the capital, Luanda.
Angola becomes independent after 14 years of armed resistance to Portuguese colonial rule.
