  • Short walk to stairs and small trail. Is very worthwhile, because the view is stunning! There are two viewpoints. On the left, you can see the formation of natural swimming pools next to the Fort-Photo 2 (worth doing the walk next to the pier, go through the strong and take the low-tide pools-until the first beach. Form "beautiful aquariums!). To the right you have the gazebo where people jump to Zipline to the first Beach-Photo 3. Also beautiful, with views of the 1st and 2nd Beach.

  • Pizza with honest price, with thin crust, filling and tasty enough quickly. Ideal for families. Good service and helpful. Hot juice.

  • The ascent is pulled because there are a lot of steps, arriving at the lighthouse has no support, but only the sunset seen from there is fantastic, providing beautiful photos

  • Lighthouse of Morro de São Paulo, had your construction started in 1848 and finish in 1855. Considered the most modern lighthouse of your time on the Brazilian coast, was built with the objective of facilitating access to city of Valencia as the Hill has always been a danger to passing boats. It's worth the climb of more than a hundred steps to the top of the Hill. The view is stunning. Unfortunate that an old deck to show this beautiful landscape is literally detonated. History and religiosity Church Nossa Senhora da Luz, built in 1620, is also an important historic monuments which depicts the past of our colonization. After the ticket is one of the first old buildings to be seen. Even having gone through reforms still retains many particularities of your initial construction. Worth knowing, because there is a short summary about the discovery of Morro de São Paulo and there are also some people buried in the floor of the Church, as was usual in the old days.

  • One of the most beautiful views of Morro de São Paulo. In addition to the wonderful view to the Tinharé Bay, you can zip line down right in the first Beach Morro, cutting path as in a shortcut, saving about 20 minutes ' walk.
