For the parish in the island of Santiago, see Tarrafal, Cape Verde. For the parish in the island of São Nicolau, see Tarrafal (São Nicolau).

Tarrafal (also known as Campo da Morte Lenta, the "Camp of the Slow Death") was a prison camp in the Portuguese colony of Cape Verde, set up by the dictator António de Oliveira Salazar after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War (1936), where opponents of his right-wing authoritarian regime were sent. At least 32 anarchists, communists, and other opponents of Salazar's regime died there[who?].

The camp was closed in 1954 but was re-opened in 1961 to jail African leaders fighting Portuguese colonialism.

In 2006, the World Monument Fund named Tarrafal one of its 100 watched monuments.[1]
