  • We went in the late afternoon but still we can visit the Museum site is clean and pretty much is a good option for those who want to know the history of Brazil.

  • The Museum is in the historic centre is an old House of detention and the access is performed by guided tours by a historian. It's very interesting to meet the cells and how they lived the prisoners of that time. Worth the visit.

  • It's a beautiful place that represents the discovery of our country. There's a lot of history on this site. A village of very well preserved houses, a historic church, a public chain transformed into a museum. All well preserved. The location still offers us fair handicrafts and typical foods and even capoeira demonstration. Thanks just visit that I made with my family.

  • Really nice place, worth visiting. Pity that always appear tourists look like suckers in place, which favors the presence of people lacking financially (from various parts of Brazil). In fact, it is good to respect people.

  • Very good. Loved see some more of the story. The chain is the most interesting.

  • Free admission. The Guide "thrilled" with what you do!

  • Visitation points are really nice and the view of almost all the points is beautiful, especially the outside reef. The recommendation is to check out the Museum and visitation of the churches, because in some situations the time is different. And I write the same for all the sights of Porto Seguro: the boring point is that everywhere has a plethora of vendors/guides (most insistent) offering tours, visits etc. Even if you refuse they remain insisting. From what I understand, it's worse in low season, because with reduced movement they can't lose the tourist who arrives.

  • The place needs to be better maintained, but still worth a visit.

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.
