  • XV de Novembro square is where the historic centre of the city. You can visit the Cathedral, the Museum, the public market, everything is close. Oh, and there's a century-old Banyan tree in the middle of the square, it's pretty cool to know. There's usually some musicians playing pro there, and has no perigp, any of it. You can take pictures, you can take a ride quiet.

  • Beautiful square, near the Cathedral, the famous fig tree that people visit and do twists and turns to get a serious relationship, there is also nearby the historical Museum. There are many beggars and homeless people that way. Could be more conserved.

  • Really beautiful place! Oasis of calm in the middle of centro
  • 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.
  • Nice place, but sometimes feels a little bit insecure.
  • 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.

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.
