History map Darwin:

H.M.S. Beagle arrived at the Cape Verde Islands on 16 January and anchored at Porto Praya, on the island of Santiago (spelled St. Jago, in Darwin's narrative). Darwin went ashore with two officers and rode to the village of Ribeira Grande, a few miles east of Porto Praya, to visit some Spanish ruins there, and returned to Porto Praya the next morning. On another day Darwin headed for St. Domingo, but became lost along the way and ended up at the village of Fuentes before heading back to the Beagle.
