  • I have travelled to Brazil often during the last 40 years and I have been in this place at least 20 times. It does not changed too much from my first time in 1974. It is in the Florianopolis downtown ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Amazing huge old trees and a very lively place with the locals. Go here.
  • Charming place at the historic heart of a most lovely city, Floripa, as the locals call it. What I like the most about it were the amazing, really well preserved trees at the square. I also enjoyed some sugar cane juice and local pastries just adjacent to that lovely place.
  • Ok
  • Still good to visit sometimes

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.
