Santa Cruz Cabralia

3.6
Said to have borne witness to the first mass in the nation's history, Santa Cruz Cabralia in many ways stands as a quintessential coastal Brazilian city. A hodgepodge of homes, palm trees, and hotels come together in the city center, all against a backdrop of the Atlantic's blue waters and white sands. Sightseeing in Santa Cruz Cabralia often starts with the giant cross erected on the main beach, a tribute to the first Catholic mass. Climbing up to the hilltop historical part of the city rewards with sweeping views out over the red tile roofs, shoreline, and sea. You'll also find architectural gems like the 17th-century Jesuit church, painted in white and blue, and historical buildings including the jail and administrative house. Santa Cruz Cabralia is in State of Bahia (BA). Add Santa Cruz Cabralia and other Brazil destinations to your travel plans using our Brazil trip builder website .

Where to stay in Santa Cruz Cabralia

Most accommodations in Santa Cruz Cabralia lie in the relatively small area within a few blocks of the beach and the coastal highway, south of the mouth of the river. Just about anywhere in town lies within easy walking distance of the ocean and historic sites, though to access the older part of town you'll need to hike up the bluff occupied by the church. While a few larger hotel complexes do exist in the city, the majority of places to stay come in the form of "pousadas," essentially family- or independently run guesthouses, bungalows, and bed and breakfasts that often occupy historical buildings, and generally at budget-friendly rates.
