Morro da Cruz, Itajai

(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Although not the highest point on the island of Santa Catarina, at 285 m (935 ft), Morro da Cruz (Hill of the Cross) is the most accessible and it provides an almost complete panorama of the entire island. Looking out from the platform by the cross for which the hill is named, you can see the two bays, the bridges Hercílio Luz, Colombo Salles, and Pedro Ivo Campos, the neighborhood Trindade, part of the east coast of Florianópolis, and, of course, the vast Atlantic Ocean, surrounding the island. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Morro da Cruz by using our Itajai travel itinerary maker.

  • The view that has the top of the Hill of the cross is just perfect. A pity that the site does not have a better infrastructure by the public entity. The Castle where the restaurant at the top of the Hill is very beautiful and also yields beautiful pictures.

  • There is only a local Viewpoint. There is no infrastructure. Good security. The ideal place to visit with family or two.

  • After a strong rise, seeing beautiful homes, you get to the top and win a castle with a restaurant and several halls for events and a panoramic view of the city of Itajaí. Mariners, ports, sensational! Great for photos!
