Cristina Udelsmann Rodrigues1 Colonial Angolan cities were built according to the racial, economic and social stratification of the time.

The most pertinent—and common—distinction is, however, that which opposes the asphalted areas and the musseques, which at the same time, synthesizes Luanda’s bi-spatial character, the traditional reference to the baixa and musseques (Carvalho 1997: 71).
