About Sao Tome

The archipelago is made up of the islands of Sao Tome, Principe, and several small islets.

Sao Tome and Principe

The island republic of Sao Tome and Principe lies about 200 km west of Gabon, in the Gulf of Guinea.

Map of S�o Tom�

Sao Tome is the largest and southernmost of the major islands. The capital is also called Sao Tome, and is on the north-east coast of the island of Sao Tome.

The first Portuguese navigators to discover the islands, while searching for a route to India in the early 1470s, probably found no inhabitants.

The Portuguese shipped convicts and Jews here, and imported African slaves to work their sugar fields.

After cacao was introduced in 1822, Sao Tome and Principe went on to become a leading world producer.

Sao Tome and Principe gained independence on July 12th, 1975, after the coup in Portugal, and many plantation owners fled the islands.
