This town is the administrative capital of the fertile Zambezia Province, with nearly one million inhabitants. It is famous for its coconut trees, which number about 12 million! Like the rest of northern Mozambique, Quelimane is largely Islamic and the sounds of muezzins come from dozens of mosques throughout the city. The main landmarks here are the District Governor's residence, which dates from 1895, and the Cathedral of Nossa Senhora do Vibramento (built in 1785, four years before the French Revolution).
