SÃO TOMÉ seen by SOMA.
SOMA was born in Santana, São Tomé e Príncipe, and we couldn’t be more fascinated by the natural beauty of the country that our girls live in. The land is green, the sand is light, the water is blue and the sun shines just the right amount of time. You wake up to the sound of birds and fall asleep to the sound of waves. In São Tomé nature prevails and we want to share our must go places so you don’t miss the magic of this island.
The city center, the capital, is a place that makes you travel between time. Take time to:
