  • Today a beautiful landscape, degraded by pollution of Guanabara Bay, in his historical accounts is described as a paradisiacal place upon their natural characteristics, with caves and submerged vegetation, making it into an unmatched. The location was named Ilha da Boa Viagem due browsers cowered on the deck of the boats for your arrival to thank good trip that had or to ask for blessing in your output to a new journey out of the Bay. At the top of the island is the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem erected in the 18TH century. On the island also housed the artillery battery "battery of Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem" that supplemented the defense of the entrance to the bar, being punished by conflicts during the Armed uprising in 1893. In 1937 was sedido to be the headquarters of the 4th group Scout the sea Hawks of the Sea (National School of Sea Scouts) to the attention of Admiral Benjamin Sodré, the "old Wolf"; and in 1840 and 1846 ran the School of Apprentices Sailors.

  • In the last 20 years, this attraction I hadn't counted on tourist infrastructure, a fact which left abandoned a historical relic with emphasis on 18TH century chapel that sits on top. From 2016, the island was open to visitors. Recommend.
