Photographer's Note

This was the end of a really sunny day, the best moment to take some pictures of the former franciscan monastery on the heights of Luanda, main city of Angola.

Today, this place is a poor museum with an old collection of weapons taken from rebels & ennemies by the Angolan Army Forces.

In spite of the lack of maintenance, this proud building is a massive & colourful heritage from the portuguese influence over this country.

Here, no evidence of the surrounding landscape. Guess what ? Below this hill, you can see the town and the endless shanty town.
