Sao Cristovao

(4.1/5 based on 260+ reviews for 9 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, museums
Named after Saint Christopher the protector of children, the city of Sao Cristovao is a journey back in time. In 1967, the entire city was proclaimed a national monument to help protect its colonial architecture. As the fourth oldest city in all of Brazil, it is a history enthusiast's playground built around the famous San Francisco Square that even UNESCO recognized as a World Heritage Site in 2010. In the 18th century city planners recognized that the dynamic beauty of the surrounding forest could add to their design's elegance, so from a distance the buildings seem to rise between the trees naturally as if they grew there along with the palms. Shining bright underneath the sun, the simple white construction of the buildings reflects the values of the colonial settlers in their new city, both embracing and opposing the forest that holds it captive. Use our Brazil tour planner to arrange the details of your trip to Sao Cristovao and other destinations.
