    Even though in retirement is very old and beautiful. Even not being able to see the Franciscan church in your fullness. Lovely to see the presence of the sacred and profane together. Too interesting and maybe one of the few altars of Brazil with the representation of St. Anthony of Categeró or St. Anthony of Accomodation. Thought-provoking the presence of the all-seeing eye at the top of the central altar carved in wood. That curious to who admires and likes to read about it. Too bad we don't have anyone explain better and more to the history of the Church is of the altars. A gift from God.

    The Church of San Francisco, is located right in the Centre of Florianopolis and is being restored. In your surrounding many street vendors, but it's still very beautiful, because it is part history of the city.

    It seems "a little embarrassed" to show your Baroque architecture in the Centre of a modern capital. But permanent testimony of the past gives us Portuguese and Azorean town.

    The Church of the third order of St. Francis of penance is the oldest of the island founded in 1745. Its neoclassical and Baroque-style architecture is beautiful. There was scaffolding reform in your interior. Is just a few metres from the Municipal market. Recommend.

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.
