    Continuing the project Revive the historical center is very nice, unfortunately the site has more abandoned houses is bad shape than manicured. The site has a wonderful potential but unfortunately is only treated well Pal of Lions. The tiles are wonderful.

    While much of urban heritage needs to be restructured, it is justified to be a city protected by Unesco. The value is inestimable. Once is all restored will be a jewel certainly.

    I thought the St. Louis a city of contrasts. I realized that the private enterprises (buildings, shopping malls and restaurants) are of the rank of a metropolis of the Southeast, while public investment does not seem to exist. The main tourist attraction of Maranhão's capital suffers from neglect and abandonment. The architectural heritage of humanity by UNESCO in 1997 comprises over 3000 houses listed by State historic landmark in an area of 2.2 Km ². The houses usually consisting of townhouses in the shape of "L" or "U" is inheritance of the Portuguese presence in São Luís. What draws the most attention are the facades of azulejos, some originals of Portugal and hand-painted. What sad is that many of these buildings or are in ruins or became tenements bad care. Leaves with the feeling of indignation.

Where to stay in Sao Luis

The more upmarket and characterful accommodations in Sao Luis can be found in the historical center, with atmospheric pousadas (guesthouses) and hotels in well-preserved colonial-era architecture. Head east of the Centro district to find budget hostels suitable for backpackers happy with simple lodgings, but who wish to be close to the main architectural sights. Larger, modern hotels lie along the island's northern coast, where a cluster of luxury and mid-range options offer rooms with sea views.
