    The gunpowder House is more a tourist attraction from downtown João Pessoa. Is an interesting place that brings us more info on the history of the city. It is located in high and strategic place to take beautiful pictures. Worth knowing.

    It is worth going down the short Hill that leads to the House. A local legend says that there is a tunnel connecting the two and which continues Cabedelo. Attention to the arched structure of the building.

    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.

    The site operated as Supplies for arms and ammunition, today is just a space for public visitation, is part of the historic circuit of the old buildings of the city.

    Great view of the sunset of the city, however there are no guards and can be dangerous.

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.
