  • Through the tour of the Museum of the strong Santana, you can learn the history of the fortresses. It has a privileged position in the Strait, between the Santa Catarina island and the Mainland, and defended the city's old port. The Marquis of Pombal makes it to build towards 1765; at the beginning of the 20th century it was abandoned until they began the work of restoration along with other strong rediscovered and recovered in the State of Santa Catarina. The set of original buildings, only missing Paiol de Pólvora; the original building includes a linear set of a flat in stone masonry buildings. The guardhouse stands out.

Where to stay in Florianopolis

To get a true taste of the city's culture on your trip to Florianopolis, it's best to stay in the historical center on Santa Catarina Island. There you'll find plenty of accommodations--a significantly better selection than on the mainland--ranging from budget guesthouses and hostels to luxury hotels. Many guests, however, choose to take advantage of the island's charming nature by staying away from the city center, in the lakeside district of Lagoa da Conceição. For easy access to the best surf beaches on the island, stay a couple miles farther away at Mole Beach or Barra da Lagoa.
