Biquinha de Anchieta, Sao Vicente

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. A visit to Biquinha de Anchieta represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sao Vicente journey builder site to plot your vacation.

  • The place is well maintained and lit, unlike other times seemed kind of abandoned and dark. They took the peddlers and saved the candy stalls-tradition of space. Much better now. Now I recommend a visit.

  • This place portrait the glittering days of the beginning of St. Vincent, there is a nice place to visit, where you can enjoy a quiet afternoon, close to nature, and the Church as vista.

  • Finally are giving due attention to the site. The city reopened the Biquinha and candy tents are already back in place. Still needs more attractions, to get back to good times.

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.
