Historic cities of Sao Cristovao and Laranjeiras, Aracaju

#4 of 9 in Historic Sites in Aracaju
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.

  • I was surprised the city is one of the most oldest in Brazil and is beautifully preserved, the people are very friendly and tour the local people do it, it has everything a bit to visit churches, museums, history, and typical food, there is a recorded with talented local artist , it is simple to walk and very convenient prices, highly recommended.

  • The two cities are very nice, historical small centers and very pleasant for walking naked. Saint Kitts in particular has very nice cultural sights, such as the woodcut and plastic arts Nivaldo (great!), the cordel literature, the point of queixadinhas, etc. But the highlight, without a doubt, is one of three local guides, Galician. Do not bother to find it. If you do not find him, he's going to find you! Just circulating around the main square

  • Oldest cities and with a lot of story to tell, churches, squares and the famous cookies and cheesecake there, well worth knowing.
