This is the Escola Tcnica (technical professional secondary school) in Mindelo, So Vicente Island, officially nowadays the Escola Industrial e Comercial do Mindelo. It is newer than the Liceu Gil Eanes, perhaps from the 50's. A Portuguese coat of arms is still on top of the faade, as you see in the workshop.
The end of the avenue, at right, is the area of Lajinha beach.
On top left you can see the Fortim d'El-Rei, a former fort and prison, on a hill between downtown and Lajinha beach area.
