  • Na Sr Bom Jesus dos Church martyrdoms to 1833 black men of the Church of Na Sra del Rosario founded the brotherhood of Bom Jesus dos martyrdoms and began construction of a precarious Chapel in the Praça dos Martírios (currently called Praça Floriano Peixoto). Shortly after he had fallen and was replaced to 1869 by the current Temple, in 1915 was taken by the white men who transformed it into an aristocratic Church, one of the most beautiful in the city. He is accessed by two staircases which originally came to the center of the square, but that in 1986 the city of Maceió cut in order to open a street. Eclectic facade with neo-Gothic features, ornaments in relief style rococo, Portuguese tiles and triangular pediment with three crosses on the round tympanum that occupies the Centre of the pediment. It has two towers symmetrical to the sides of the pediment and three doors with an equal number of windows at the height of the choir inside the ship is in the form of traditional T of the colonial style, the altar of neo-classical lines with white background and gilt friezes.

Where to stay in Maceio

Accommodations in Maceio crowd around the city's eastern shorefront, competing for a spot in the morning sun. The best places to stay during your Maceio vacation are the neighborhoods of Ponta de Terra, Ponta Verde, and Jatiúca. You can find everything from free-spirited hostels to high-class hotels and beach resorts along the coastal strip, within a stone's throw of white sand beaches. To get off the beaten track, go west to the other edge of the city, where palm-lined Lagoa Mundaú brims with birdlife and local fishers looking for the day's catch among the mangroves.
