Landmark Tourist Spot
Biquinha de Anchieta is a small square characteristic for its tiled fountain depicting padre Anchieta, the Jesuit priest who tried to convert the native Indians to Catholicism. Surrounded by souvenir shops, and shops selling Brazilian homemade sweets such as passion-fruit pudding and beijinhos de coco (coconut kisses, similar to macaroons), the site is pleasant for a brief stroll and souvenir shopping. There is also a playground for kids. Plan to see Biquinha de Anchieta and other attractions that appeal to you using our Sao Vicente trip builder.

  • The site went through a fire and was abandoned for a long time, with the location is already open, with lights and watch site. Only problem is the people that come and are using illicit drugs in the areas cleared, needed more policing

  • With a good location, the square which houses the Biquinha is a mix of people filling Gallons, thirsty sportsmen and even homeless. Overall, worth only for registration, local spot has many attractions.

  • The historical part is on the side of the square is not well cared for, but has some attractions of food and drink, like a market worth, I recommend the Focaccia of Andréia which is pretty big and fair price.

Where to stay in Sao Vicente

The main urban area of Sao Vincente is primarily residential, with only a few accommodations dotted throughout. Pousadas (guesthouses) and hostels offer budget rooms in the main residential areas, although many sit quite far from the city's main attractions. Many holidaymakers instead choose to stay is in the neighborhood of Gonzaguinha during their Sao Vicente vacation. The beachside area is a home to a good collection of accommodations, including the city's main hotels, which line the waterfront and boulevards. A handful of pousadas and hostels sit on the side streets.
