The Palácio Presidencial (Portuguese meaning the Presidential Palace, Capeverdean Crioulo, ALUPEC or ALUPEK: Palásiu Prizidensial or -Prezidensial) is a Cape Verdean monument located at Rua Pedro Álvares Cabral near the southern end of Avenida Andrade Corvo and is south of Rua Serpa Pinto connected with another driveway. It was constructed in the end of the 19th century of colonial and neo-greco architecture and used as a residence of the Portuguese governor until Cape Verde gained independence in 1975. It is in the downtown area of the capital city, Praia, in a part known as Platô in the southernmost part. North of the building has a driveway linking Rua Serpa Pinto.
The area also features a luxuriant garden.
From 2014 to late 2015, the building went under restoration works and also expanded the east wing to Avenida Andrade Corvo, new concrete tiles were put south of the building. The nearby kiosk was removed and the walkway became narrow. West of the palace, the nearby parking lots (or carpool) were removed in around 2010, in 2014, concrete tiles were added and a square opened in 2016.
