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.

  • The Church is very beautiful. The site is accessible. I don't know if it's allowed to take picture of the inside of the Church. Worth checking out the site.

  • I love it when I'm visiting a city and especially love visiting churches, I found very beautiful church of our Lady of Sorrows.

  • It is a beautiful church perhaps lacks a little more than care like the vast majority of the historic centre of Maceió

  • Church aimed at practitioners of the Catholic religion, with a Baroque architecture. The building itself features a historic air to downtown Maceió.
