  • The Historic Centre of Aracaju is delivered. The conservation of the historical and cultural heritage is very bad. In fact, there is a historical center itself, but rather a location downtown with predominantly old architecture and poorly maintained. Definitely, this is not the strong point of Aracaju. Including, seemed a bit dangerous and do not recommend getting too out there at night.

  • the region is home to the most important churches, squares, ancient mansions and historic landmarks of the city. Features markets, museums, craft centres and typical food, besides a vigorous trade area and an exclusive track for pedestrians between the boardwalks of João Pessoa and Orange streets. All this in front of the beautiful view of the river.

  • The visit to the historic centre of Aracaju worth. The architectural ensemble is nice although not everything is preserved. Everything is close and it is possible to walk safely. But on weekends, some equipment close the 1:00 pm and almost all of the 15 hours.
