  • Interesting ride, in my point of view the chapel should be restored. Do not go on a rainy day.

  • Ride of a lifetime for anyone who hates decorate nonsense of history books and likes to explore the living history. At the bottom, are nothing but ruins, but if you know the story, makes the visit imagining all and is very impressed. It is a church of Saint Anthony and a small statue of him still in a niche above the altar. The Church was built in 1560 with stones, lime removal of Shell mounds and whale oil. Yes, whales! Next to the ruins of the Church are the ruins of the oil deposits of the frame of the Whales. Fishing for whales was an industry in Brazil. If I was taught this in school, it's been hit. Whale meat was salty (like beef jerky), the oil was used in lighting and construction to make mortar and the fins-tadam! they were used in corsets. May be the first brazilian Church. Incredible ignorance of brazilian bureaucracy. The ruins are degraded and super can't do voluntary actions to save them!!! Nor pray mass. Why???? Why are in the process of tipping! While you decide if you're going to be toppled and that decision is taking the US-don't they! See that access to the ruins is next to the ferry. Tranquilíssimo! But our bureaucracy can't make it happen. Read the monography of Barros and others in ETEC Santos Dumont about church. Great! CBT account the "miracle of lights". The Foot. José de Anchietano would have spent a night in the Church to pray. At dawn the people at Fort next saw many lights and heard a wonderful music that sounded like voices of angels coming from there. Father José de Anchieta catequizava Indians in the Church. CBT account that the very construction of the Church was made with the help of the Indians who carried the massive stones.

Where to stay in Bertioga

Most of Bertioga’s visitors are domestic tourists, many of whom have holiday homes in the area. When the owners aren’t enjoying a vacation, they rent out the properties, at what is often a very reasonable rate. These homes-away-from-home vary widely, ranging from studio apartments to luxurious villas. If you’d prefer to stay in a hotel on your vacation, consider any of a number of large establishments near the beachfront. Bear in mind that prices tend to increase the closer you get to the sea. Bed and breakfasts or inns, referred to as “pousadas,” are often more budget friendly.
