Cacheu is a town in north western Guinea-Bissau, lying on the Cacheu River. Population 9,849 (2008 est). [ [http://world-gazetteer.com/wg.php?x=&men=gcis&lng=en&des=wg&srt=npan&col=abcdefghinoq&msz=1500&geo=-95 World Gazetteer] , Retrieved on June 16 2008]

Formerly an important ferry port, ferries no longer sail to São Domingos. Roads in the town are paved with oil palm kernels, while notable buildings include a sixteenth century fort, dating from the period when Cacheu was a centre for the Portuguese slave trade.
