    Historic site that tells the post discovery of Brazil. I liked the old jail Museum and options of local craft stores. The sea view beside the ruins and next to the landmark possession is wonderful!

    Outerio da Glória (Hill) most of the comments and photos that have been published here do not correspond to this site but to the historic city where there is Zero context or frame of the discovery of 1503, which lies further to the South the Outerio gives glory to which is acc Ede by a different path in this the Outerio morro da Gloria are the ruins of the Church of São Francisco which would be the second church built in Brazil in the Baroque style, probably in 1504. At the beginning of 1503 the Portuguese expedition of Gonzalo Coelho arrived to colonise the shores of the Brazil and attained a friendly contact with the Indians of the Corumbau River and from there went to Porto Seguro. Ynaia, sister of Chief Abaitara of the tribe Caraíva Aimorés, South of Porto Seguro, fell in love with one of the crew of that expedition and was her lover. When the squad went to Portugal, as legend has it, she jumped into the sea to reach them but died drowned and the Indians blamed the Portuguese by this fact and set fire to the Church two years after its construction. His remains would be buried at this site. There is a statue of Ynaia in the Avda April 22, opposite the pier in the city of Porto Seguro the entrance is located approximately at the height of the Memorial do Descobrimento within a private condominium, but with free access. The Church only has one space pillar or column of stones and original mortar with concrete in several places stands. There is a wooden cross and a viewpoint from where it is possible to see part of the city, the beaches and the replica of the Caravel of Pedro Álvares de Cabral which is located in the Memorial

    The site has a small and beautiful church, with the ruins of the Jesuit school, and a beautiful view of the sea. Must-see in Porto Seguro. We were between noon and 2:00 pm and was very quiet, no harassment propagated.

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.
