- Off the southern end of Av Amilcar Cabral Town Centre
Lonely Planet review for Fortaleza d'Amura
Off the southern end of Av Amilcar Cabral are the narrow streets of the old Portuguese quarter, with colourful if often crumbling Mediterranean-style buildings. The old neighbourhood is guarded by the Fortaleza d'Amura. Surrounded by imposing stone walls, it's still used by the Guinean military and strictly off-limits to visitors.
