Capela de Sao Pedro, Fernando de Noronha

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
See the vast expanse of water below Capela de Sao Pedro, a cliff top chapel at the foot of a mountain. Tiny, simple, and isolated on the top of a hill overlooking the ocean, this no-frills church has a large cross erected next to it and offers superb views of the sea. Built in the 1930s by the French, the structure includes carved wooden entrance doors and a bell in the front facade. Due to the scenery, many opt to have their wedding here. On Saint Peter's Day (July 29), a procession from the nearby town comes to the top of the hill for an outdoor mass celebrating the protector of fishermen.

  • I suggest the following: take the bus to the port, walk to the Chapel and then go to the Air France. We were kind of at lunchtime and made a picnic up there of Chapel Hill, wonderful!

  • Very nice and good view, it is a must to visit and it is very near the port, you can take good pictures there. 
  • The chapel of sao pedro to show the date tame outside as mar de dentro. The beach is called alameda tubaroes, where in mare full they're going to rest and breed. Beautiful view of pets, your descent and forbidden, but from the viewpoint of to show. Nominate go when the mare is full and with enough Sun La to see the sunrise.
