  • The place is very dirty and has many beggars who approach the tourists, not to mention the amount of miscreants who are in the area bringing insecurity to tourists. The policing of the site is done through vehicles that spend very little on the site, but leave shortly thereafter; This fact, for some of the false sense of security, but if people are not smart may have the disappointment of being robbed.

  • The harbour of Ferries has a rich history and a houses that must be preserved. To attract the attention it is vital that pass through a revitalization or die languishing. The handicraft trade is legal and the bars attract more liberal audiences and families moved away. We didn't have the heart to eat in port due to poor health conditions. Assets of this magnitude cannot be destroyed. #SóAcho

  • Darker urine-smelling and very few options. It is really a place that can easily be removed from your itinerary. What saves it is the craftsmanship that is sold there, many options and with fair price. Bad food, bad guy. If you are visiting the Porto das Barcas, that is the view of the sunset or for crafts.
