  • Meet the San Francisco square is like being transported to a different historical time, a nostalgic feeling amazing. Very beautiful place which brings together the main buildings of the colonial period of that place.

  • A place to save some of our colonial histories, the architectural style and the local culture, a way of life. Worth knowing

  • São Francisco square, in the small town sergipana de São Cristóvão (former state capital), is one of 14 World Heritage sites worldwide located in Brazil, according to the Unesco – thanks to the architectural ensemble of buildings started to be built in 1607. In addition to the square itself, the collection of works exhibited in the Museum of sacred art. I invite all who make a tour of the Northeast to meet this wealth that probably (as always) is being valued more by foreigners than for us Brazilians.

  • The square is nice and is well preserved, especially compared with orange trees, another historic town near Aracaju. There's a tourist base still incipient, but based to develop. Museums and churches could open early for visitation; I was able to visit only one church, and was around 9:00. For some churches away from the square, there was no information.

  • Beautiful, the whole town of São Cristóvão's historical and cultural heritage. Just needs a little more attention from the public authorities. In March 2018 some churches were closed and others are open for individual efforts.

  • A beautiful representation of the Portuguese colonial architecture. But don't let it get after 16 hours. Besides being all you can be approached so inconvenient for some place wanting to earn money as a "Guide".

  • Historic place of strong construction, built to last forever. The city is trying to recover the region. We hope you can. The historic centre is receiving Led lamps, in a demonstration of effort improving access and security for the region.
