|Recurring Event (See all)

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.
