  • Without going to the Center, we are without knowing what is the face of the city. I found a mixture of the old centre of João Pessoa with the center of Itapuã.

  • Good buildings well preserved for history lovers in the city of Aracaju. Worth knowing.

  • Poorly maintained buildings, nothing special, and some closed. It's not worth it, under the hot sun.
