    HUILA (Lubango)

Lubango is the capital city of the province of Huila. Initially, with the Portuguese colonization, Huila was included in the territory of Benguela and after which it was integrated in the District of Mocamedes (now called Namibe).

The municipality of Humpata has a great tourist potential. It was where the first colonies were set up, due to the natural beaty of the area. The Fenda do Alto Bambi, the Cristo Rei Belvedere, the Barragens (Dams) da Neves show other spots which are an absolute must for the tourist.

This region was discovered by the Boer colonizers on 4th January, 1881. It was declared a council (municipality) on the 17th January, 1883. It has an area of 1,261,250 Km2 and around 60,000 in habitants. The main economic activities are agriculture and rearing of stock.
