Boe (full name Madina do Boe) is a settlement in the southeastern region of Guinea-Bissau. In this location the independence of Guinea-Bissau was declared on September 24, 1973. Boe served as the Guinea-Bissau de facto capital until 1974, when Portugal offered independence to Portuguese Guinea after the Carnation Revolution in Lisbon, and Bissau was declared the national capital of the newly independent country.
