  • It is a small town distant 1 hour from St. Louis. The high bridge of the visit is the famous church and the large Holy image that gives the name to the city. Second a Mr site that gets around, he says that the city's name is because it is located above sea level ("arriba"), and the population be devotee of St. Joseph, so called São José "arriba" of the sea, being named São José de Ribamar. The city is also a great spot for fishing.

  • The view is simply beautiful. From the top, near the statue of St. Joseph is more beautiful still. The beach was deserted with very low tide.
