  • We were in a time when there was no movement and the climate of tranquility of the place is very interesting. The view is also very pretty but the Church wasn't open and could not wear it.

  • The Church of Nossa Senhora da Guia is very beautiful and the symbolism of the place is charming. The history of construction and the environment your enchant everyone. This last time I went to church was closed it was not possible to people who were there know the inner part. Very nice, great for recording memories

  • Make sure you know! When I went to the Church was closed, but only your façade is worth the visit. From a walk around her and enjoy your architecture. After, in front of it will see the cemetery, a cemetery, very, very ornate and beautiful. Beauty comes with care the graves and not because these are this or that rock. Finally, enjoy the loal visual!

  • A must for people who go to Lucena. In fact, a must to those who will meet the Paraiba! The Church of Nossa Senhora da Guia or Guia Sanctuary dating from the 16th century. And, man, what impresses is to remain standing when the historic heritage does not receive due attention. The place for your value, is signaled. I mean, there is in the Church of Nossa Senhora da Guia any card describing or which amplify the whole history of that temple. Which is a shame because that place is a history lesson. Its location, on a high plane of Lucena, allows a great view. And you can't imagine the locality at the time when it was chosen for your building-in the 16th century. As it should be, that exuberant nature. At night, on Thursday, there is a mass at 7:00 pm. On Sundays, in the morning, there are also mass. Person in simple and welcoming parish. It pays to know the Church of Nossa senhora da Guia.

  • It is considered one of the most unique churches in the country, its decorative elements were fully carved in limestone-fronted, frames of the Windows, portals and even the altars. It's simply a trip to the past, plan a weekend to meet and be enchanted with the place.

  • Wonderful Church, began to be built in the 17th century in a strategic location with extensive views of the ocean and the mouth of the Paraíba River. Maintains the view in the present day. The campo santo simple and well groomed, located in front of the Church, is a special case. I highly recommend a visit!

  • Very beautiful Church, overlooking the sea. You get in touch with God. There's a cemetery across the street.

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.
