  • Beautiful panoramic view of the whole city of Florianopolis! Charming place!! Take a jacket because the Hill is cold! Who's Gaucho, wonderful choice is to take a mate and be contemplating the visual! Cell phones lose the signal in place.

  • Have a beautiful view of the city, but I think the city has the most interesting attractions. But if you are on a busy day it's worth getting it because is very close to the Center.

  • Access to the site is very easy, paved the way to the top. You just have to be careful when putting on the GPS, depending on the place of the city that you are the GPS will make the way through of a slum. The best thing is to go for access located near the Beiramar Shopping, as this is the main path and safer. The place always has a few keepers charging parking, better pay not to stress later. How much the view of the place is amazing, you can see the whole central area of the capital, the sea, and some cities in the metropolitan region, such as San Jose, Palhoça and Biguaçu.

  • Exciting place ... Access is delicate and must be taken, but well worth the view rewarding to get to the top of the Hill.

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.
