    For those who like history of Brazil gets emotional. There, you can imagine the difficulties for your construction and, later, of the survival of the soldiers in time of war.

    We got special permission to pass because they are renovating. But you know the entire fortress is on the tip of morro de são paulo

    Unfortunately I was in retirement (restoration), but from the outside it must be very interesting and that the Sun must be incredible.

Where to stay in Morro de Sao Paulo

A good set of pousadas (guesthouses) and small hotels nestle up as close as they can to Morro de Sao Paulo's main beach areas, offering rooms to suit a variety of budgets and tastes. Some enjoy additional facilities, such as outdoor pools, bars, and restaurants, and one of the primary concerns for visitors is securing a sea view. However, if you're looking to spend more time outside than in, you'll find plenty of affordable rooms throughout the atmospheric little village. Come peak season (December to March), however, big crowds mean that free rooms are scarce, so book ahead.
