    For being in a high point of the city you can see the entire city, however for those who will walk the walk is a little long.

    The view that we have of the city is spectacular, worth the trip. The Church is particularly interesting for its relationship with Chico Rei. In its interior there are signs of cultural syncretism that draws attention

    This church has a beautiful story, so it's special. The slaves hid gold under his nails and climbed the Hill, and there lay the gold they could get. Gradually been accumulating. And the result was the construction of the Church and the purchase of freedom of many blacks.
