  • There's nothing interesting, just the view from up there that is beautiful, but also there was no one to greet us. The car keeper said he now only gets closed.

  • Is very close to the Church of San Francisco. If you are with a guide, it's worth the visit just to hear the history of the site. When I went there was nothing inside.

  • My wife and I, following advice from the Church of St. Francis, we did this tour in the morning. The day before, in the late afternoon, we were doing the walk in the Franciscan set and, for security reasons, do not proceed until the gunpowder House, which is very close, just on the hillside of San Francisco. So, the next day we opened, without exposure. Has a privileged view: you can see the Sanhauá River, the most important historically. The city was born at its banks. Also, one can see the Church of São Frei Pedro Gonçalves.

Where to stay in Joao Pessoa

As you'd expect, most of the accommodations in Joao Pessoa crowd around the eastern coastline, jostling for the best position to catch a glimpse of the morning sun. Of these areas, the beach neighborhoods of Cabo Branco Tambaú and Manaíra offer by far the best range of places to stay. In pleasant contrast to many of Brazil's other coastal cities, a restriction on high-rise buildings along the shorefront has helped the city retain its laid-back, natural feel. Consequently, most hotels are housed in smaller, unobtrusive buildings. You won't find a huge range of budget accommodations in the city, but if visiting in low season (March to November), you can bargain for as much as 40 percent off the regular price.
