  • Going to Porto Seguro, be sure to visit the historic center. Nice place with varied dining options, place for food and spots for beautiful photos. Do not forget to eat the Acarajé D. Neusa, it is delicious.

  • Nice ride, I suggest you go in the morning because everything is working. I went to the evening and was a little deserted but we took a local accredited guide that charged 30 reais was a true history class.

  • A set of Portuguese colonial constructions that involves houses, churches, chamber and jail, lighthouse and the landmark of discovery. All this can be seen on a walking tour of the historic center of Porto Seguro and it is a must-see as a road trip for those visiting the city. A guided tour tends to be much better used because many information is passed through the local guides, but it is not mandatory and is an option for those who want only to know or to deepen more in the history of the "discovery of Brazil" the site is in a Privileged spot when overlooking the modern city and the sea which yields beautiful photos. There we can see closely 3 churches being: Our Lady of the Feather, Our Lady of Mercy and Saint Bendito (one of the first churches in Brazil), besides the House of Chamber and Chain where a small museum works, as well as dozens of houses of the time and the lighthouse of Porto Seguro. Highlight of the discovery landmark brought by the Portuguese in the 15TH century. Finally, it is worth checking closely with very calm and tranquility and without doubt will be a very pleasurable moment and knowledge of our rich history.
