  • Culture of Brazil's history, with peculiar beauty to the place in front of a beautiful landscape of porto seguro, in addition to the peace of a beautiful sanctuary.

  • Despite several centuries, this church is well preserved. It's very small but it is worth noticing the architectural details, including the thickness of the walls.

  • I found the beautiful Church, but I think they could improve and put some attraction. Was the one that found most cared for on-site.

  • Mui bela!
  • Bela vista!
  • Nice ride, worth knowing. But go on their own, otherwise you will lose a whole day going with a travel agency.

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.
