  • The architecture of the historic centre of Aracaju in the colonial period with strong artistic and religious influence of our settlers

  • Like other historic centres, there is little preserved buildings, some places a little dirty. But worth knowing, so learn as was the city in the old days. There are also buildings restored.

  • A very beautiful place, with a few old buildings and well cared for. It's pretty busy and close the central market which is great to buy souvenirs.
