  • In the case of historic place, disappointed in this area known as lower town. Missing cleaning streets and, above all, tourism signage for example, orienting for a walk. Preferably signs written in Portuguese and English. Terrible odor of mold inside the Hotel Globo. The only thing that was good was the knowledge of the local guide.

  • The Globe Hotel is in Largo da Igreja de São Frei Pedro Gonçalves and was a very famous back then. Today you can get in and the garden where there is a view of the woods of the island from the axis and the Paraíba River. In addition, the location is in the historic centre of João Pessoa, where there are many churches and old mansions.
