Maputo is the capital city of Mozambique and is the commercial and cultural centre of the country. The city is known for its cafes, bars, discotheques and nightlife. Located on the southern end of the country, the region is home to a vibrant culture and eclectic architecture. Initially, the region was a fishing village that developed into a Portuguese fort in 1781. The area started developing around this fort into a Portuguese Colony. Major aesthetic landmarks in the city include Independence Square, Central Market, City Hall, Maputo fortress and Tunduru Gardens.
