Aside from the hills around it this is a nothing place.
If you want to get a better glimpse of urban life outside Maputo, you should check out:

For some reason i really like the look of this city

The setting is beautiful but again too much neglect, what is the mayor of this town doing? How can he show so little interest in keeping this small city neat and proper and investor-friendly? It is not a question of being rich to take a pot of paint and repaint most of those buildings AND GET SOME OF THE ROADS FIXED! I am sure that the city has seen brighter days...and we have to look for ways to bring it back to life

I agree. I also like this city for some reason. It's a small city to the north of Mozam but it looks tranquil, spacious and very well vegetated. The streets are wide and has some nice geography around the city. Also, many of the buildings are not in such bad condition. It seems that the church and 2 apartment or office buildings dominate the skyline.
I also created a "Beira" thread and that particular city wasn't in the same condition as this one.

Nampula is in much better shape than Beira, which is a hellhole place. Northern Mozambique is much poorer than the South. The per capita income of Nampula province is only $100 while Maputo city province is over $1,500.

I dunno the pictures of both Nampula and Beira look like they were both once nice cities.....:) Nampula still looks beautiful.

Love this city even with a few neglected buildings/roads.A few gallons of paint more well tended greenery would do.With roads they can be expensive to fix esp if your tax base is poor/small and need approval of far off minister of local gov't but try they can.However this city has alot of potential.

Not to be a killjoy, but I fail too see the "beauty" of this city.... Or are we looking at the same pics? But yeah, beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess...
