  • small, just come and go. But it has a weird vibe in it. What's interesting are the cave inscriptions.

  • I love entering the cave and come out the other side and climb on top of the cave and see the square from the top. Very good observing the sky during the night. Right in the center of town and front has military police and banco Itaú.

Where to stay in Sao Thome das Letras

Welcoming bed and breakfasts abound in Sao Thome Das Letras, with a good range of options for most budgets. The city sprawls out over the mountain’s peak, so it’s wise to decide which attractions you’d like to be closest to when looking for your accommodations.

The jungle and cave systems lie further out, however, so if those are your focus, consider staying on the edge of town for convenience.
