  • Guided tours, priceless views of the port: translucent, sea ships coming and going. The proposal is to reveal the multiple regional arts and the Museum rises do it like few others. Away from cliches, even the "faith" I heard surprising by the ambiance. Necessary. Enjoy close and also pass in the Pinacoteca of UFAL, who knows what might be going on there? Back to the Museum, the architecture is a treat. I still come back.

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.
