Historic cities of Sao Cristovao and Laranjeiras, Aracaju

3.5
#5 of 8 in Historic Sites in Aracaju
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Travel back in time to the Historic cities of Sao Cristovao and Laranjeiras where expansive, cobblestone plazas are bordered with simple, orange and yellow-colored buildings. Stroll the streets, past locals traveling by mule and cart, and image yourself a town local heading home after church for a family meal in a rustic kitchen. In Laranjeiras, look for a church with a tower called Morro do Bonfim Hill. Walk toward the church and ask a local about the keys to the tower, they will point you towards a family home near the church's entrance. Knock on the door and politely ask to be let into the church. Once inside, climb the tower steps until you reach a lookout. It provides a wonderful view of the town and surrounding area, the same view that many a priest must have seen, unchanged after almost two centuries. Our Aracaju vacation generator makes visiting Historic cities of Sao Cristovao and Laranjeiras and other Aracaju attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
