Casa de Anchieta, Itanhaem

#6 of 11 in Nature in Itanhaem
A well-maintained wooden walkway takes visitors to Casa de Anchieta, a giant rock situated atop a hill that offers an unobstructed view of the sea. This spot has been a favorite of locals for many years, who come here to meditate, pray, or simply enjoy the peaceful view of the water. The site, which has become a tourist attraction in recent years, is named after Father Jose de Anchieta, a 16th century Jesuit priest who built the first chapel in Sao Paolo. Watch your step when visiting this location, as the rocks, over which part of the path leads, become extremely slipper on rainy days.

    Follow in the footsteps of one of the great evangelizers of our country is important. Deserves to a more elaborate religious tourism itinerary, in the States of São Paulo and Espírito Santo. And so close a lot of other tourist attractions.

    A wooden walkway leads to a stone, cut in the shape of a bed, which is where the Padre Anchieta rested. It seems to me a kind of forced, and any case worth by curiosity.

    Each of Anchieta. Nice tourist place to be meet in Itanhaém, however you have to keep alert, because insecurity in the place because there have been robberies there. So don't be careless and don't wear it out. Did you see anything suspicious, do 190.

Where to stay in Itanhaem

As you'd expect in a town popular for its beaches, the greatest number of accommodations in Itanhaem do their best to get as close to the golden sands and sea as possible. These range from upmarket beach club hotels and resorts offering private beaches and bars with sea views, to simple, unfussy bed and breakfasts located beachside. Follow the river inland to find resort-style accommodations surrounded by the lush vegetation and tropical feel of the Atlantic Forest. To get out into the region's formidable rural areas, consider staying at one of the motels along Rodovia Padre Manoel da Nobrega, the main road for heading in and out of town.
