Photo of the Week: Luanda Sunset
A family walks at sunset along Avenida 4 de Fevereiro, also known as Avenida Marginal, the beautiful waterfront of the Angolan capital. Luanda was founded in 1575 by the Portuguese explorer Paulo Dias Novais. The fortress of São Miguel, illuminated in the background, was constructed in 1634.
The photo was taken by Nicola Sacco. Follow him on instagram at @nicoladai.
