Jesus Christ in Lubango.
Lubango was known as S da Bandeira during the Portuguese colonial period. In 1882 approximately one thousand settlers came from the impoverished Portuguese island of Madeira. These Portuguese farmers thrived and their subsistence farming consisting of mostly sweet potatoes was very successful. By 1910 there were over 1700 Madeirans living in the settlement that was referred to as Lubango.
By 1923 the Mo鈔medes Railway had connected the settlement to the coast. The Portuguese government made it an official city and renamed it S da Bandeira. After Angola's Independence the city was once again renamed Lubango


Cristo Rei no Lubango.
Lubango (denominada S da Bandeira at 1975) uma cidade e um municpio do sul de Angola, situada no planalto da Hula. ノ a capital da provncia da Hula.Data de 1627 o primeiro contacto europeu com as terras do planalto angolano. A soberania portuguesa iniciou-se em 1769 com a cria鈬o do presdio de Alva Nova. Pouco depois surgiram os madeirenses que, em Janeiro de 1885, fundaram a colnia de S da Bandeira.Jo縊 Antnio da Aguiar realizou o plano de urbaniza鈬o da cidade, uma das mais belas de Angola. Para al駑 do Lubango, apreciadores apontam a Hula como a mais bela regi縊 de Angola, contendo de facto as mais cantadas paisagens de Angola, como a serra da Leba, os r疳idos da Tundavala ou a Nossa senhora do Monte.
