  • Is a good place to give that stop to rest on one of the benches in the shade of majestic fig tree. When I was there there was a crib made by hand very handsome as well native-style Island.

  • Common square, but very well wooded. There are century-old trees treated with great affection. I found hardly frequented, even being in the afternoon

  • 15 square is full of history and beauty. There happened great moments of history (Novembrada, for example) and is surrounded by more story, and there are few historical buildings around, as the Palace Cruz and Sousa. However, the square is getting dirtier and there are always many beggars out there better watch out.

  • Really beautiful place! Oasis of calm in the middle of centro
  • Center of downtown one Plaza with a big tree.
  • A grate square with a big shade from centenary tree is remarkable, besides an artcraft fair in front the church, with various gifts for tourists take 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.
