  • The Metropolitan Cathedral of Maceió deserves your visit in the Centre of Maceió. It is a historic church, built in 1859 and largest Catholic Temple in the State. The roof of the central hall of your interior, all in blue with golden stars and the image of Our pleasures to the Center; and the 3 altars of your interior in Baroque style are also very beautiful.

  • Praça D. Pedro II known as the Cathedral of Na Sra dos Prazeres, was opened in 1859 by the Emperor D. Pedro II, although construction had begun many years earlier. It presents architectural styles different due to different modifications suffered since its construction. He is accessed by two large staircases. The façade a neoclassical characteristic triangular pediment with tympanum round in the center of it, three central doors and two side and three windows at the height of the choir. Regular plant and two square towers with Bell on either side of its main façade. Inside the high altar that originally had a wooden altarpiece was replaced by one of masonry, there are two pulpits with canopy decorated with fillets of gold, candelabra of silver and two side altars dedicated to san Sebastian and San Miguel the Brotherhood of the Holy Sacrament added a chapel in 1875 with its name. At the beginning of the 19th century there was also the brotherhood of souls that allowed the participation of women (with the permission of their husbands or parents) and slaves (with the permission of their masters), but by 1865 were banned from participation because the Brotherhood became more conservative as the city prospered

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.
