  • Located in the historic centre of João Pessoa, the Globe, was built in the mid-1840. Is close to the Sanhauá River and about buried ruins.

  • The Church is included in one of the earliest nuclei in the formation of the urban structure of the old town. Despite receiving a newsletter that said the Church would open: from Tuesday to Saturday, from 9:00 to 10:45; Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, of 3:20 pm to 4:00 pm; and Sunday, 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm, that didn't go very well. We made a plan to find it open in the morning and that's not what happened. Then, we take pictures of the same external and the Largo de São Pedro, meet the Hotel Globo, the train line, etc. However, his luck changed. There's a large group of tourists with a guide and shortly after there was a person with a key to the Church. Maybe the guide had someone contact the Secretariat, administration, I don't know. All I know is that we take advantage of the opportunity. We stayed a while contemplating, meditating. We perceive inside the Church an isolated area that highlighted archaeological work had been carried out on the ground and traces found in these surveys. We took pictures, we walked a bit and we left satisfied with the present.

  • Beautiful church, located in the neighborhood of Varadouro, virtually on the banks of the Sanhauá River where the city started to be built. The current building has undergone several renovations and is in great condition and open to visitation (but with restricted goods schedules). In your interior is preserved as archeological site, the foundations of the original Chapel began to be built in the mid 18th century. In addition to the historical interest, the sunset and the view of the Sanhauá-Paraíba rivers are worth. Another event not to be missed is the procession of our Lady of the conception (8 December) coming out of the Church, walks through the Grass and port community has your River path to the "Holy Crown" on the river Paraíba, where a field mass. I highly recommend!

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.
