The Serra da Leba separates Huíla. With a decline of more than 1000 meters, it is part of the tourist itinerary from inside and outside doors, being one of the most recognizable landscapes in Angola.
It stands out for its zigzagged entrance is a 20-mile, 19-curved work of art, found in 1915, with the boldness and recognition of Engineer Artur Torres, now connecting Namibe to Lubango in two hours.
