  • In visit to Maranhão, São Luís, be sure to know the city of Alcântara, whose access is by a ferry, which carries out regular sailings to that island. Alcantara has a rich historic site, related mainly to the period of slavery in the country. One of the highlights is the pelourinho in Praça da Matriz, used for the punishment of slaves. The history of slavery in the city's rich, still generating controversy as the expropriation of areas defined as quilombo lands for the construction of a rocket launch station. Worth the sacrifice of the cross, because, during the journey, you can enjoy an ice cream of Cupuaçu for relax.
