    Take a moment on your trip to get to know the historical center! Is very worthwhile and is a history lesson in the open, in addition to an incredible view of the city, because the Center is at the high end, easy to reach.

    It is a chapel dating from 1549 and was built by the Jesuits. Next to it are the ruins of the old College of the society of Jesus. Rosary of the Homens Pretos it was known also as the Church or the chapel of São Pedro and Nossa Senhora do. It was the Church of the slaves and blacks who could not share the religious services with their white masters. It has images of two black Saints São Benedito and Santa Ifigenia.

Where to stay in Porto Seguro

Luxury hotels and beach resorts are the name of the game when it comes to accommodations in Porto Seguro, with many tourists looking to relax and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Most of these lie a couple of miles north of the city center, pressed up against long stretches of beach. To enjoy the party scene and get close to the best things to see in Porto Seguro, stay in the narrow streets of the old town. However, if the nightlife seems a bit too intense for your taste, consider the plentiful options in Arraial d'Ajuda--a smaller, quieter town just a couple of miles to the south.
