Morro da Cruz, Itajai

4.4
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. Put Morro da Cruz at the forefront of your travel plans using our Itajai holiday tool .

  • The view is stunning, however, could be a little more careful. Both of the Prefecture, and the regulars, there's a lot of pinned area.

  • An amazing place to see the gorgeous Itajaí ... very well located to see the Harbour and the city of Itajaí.

  • It's close, has shade and provides an incredible view of the cities of Itajaí, Navegantes and Penha. Is very worthwhile.
