    Beautiful and well kept, is on the edge of santarem, and in front has a square filled with camel. Visit early in the morning or after the 4:00 in the afternoon, as it is very hot and humid climate.

    Church quite old but very well looked after. Puzzled by the fact that the time of marriage be the 21 hours but seems to be local custom. Worth the visit.

Where to stay in Santarem

The main cluster of accommodations lies just to the east of the Curuai-Santarem ferry dock. These basic, unpretentious hotels don't differ much from one another; views of the river are chief among the selling points. Move away from the water, and the lodgings get a little simpler, occupying formerly residential blocks, as opposed to the purpose-built blocks that line the riverside. The city's outskirts offer motels along the main roads, giving good access to the surrounding jungle areas.
