  • The crypt of Epitácio Pessoa sits inside the Court of Paraíba, in the Plaza of the three powers. Is a little-known yet by the population, which should be part of the tourist routes of the paraibana capital. The own building of the Court of Paraíba is already a spectacle of historic architecture, furniture, pictures and details. So the crypt of a figure as illustrious as Epitácio Pessoa, closes with the importance of the site. Highly recommended.

  • Visit, in the lobby of the Court of Paraíba, the Museum and Crypt of the ex-President Epitácio Pessoa. In the first part of the dependency, we find photos, documents, furniture and other objects that belonged to the couple Epitácio Lindolfo da Silva Pessoa and Maria da Conceição Manso Saião of da Silva Pessoa, known as Mary Johnson. Access to the crypt is made down a few flights of stairs to the basement of the building. The environment is crepuscular. There is a light above the tombstone that allows you to read the following sentence of the ex-President on the wall: "nobody ever, no matter how humble it was appealed to me, in the name of Justice, that I didn't see soon personally committed in defending your right". Visitation: business hours of the TJ, normally from Monday to Thursday, from 8:00 to 6:00 pm/Friday, from 7:00 to 1:00 pm. Can be scheduled in advance for guided group visits: (83) 3216-1400

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.
