Biquinha de Anchieta, Sao Vicente

(1.9/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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 history of Brazil passed by this place that today is in a precarious situation. The brazilian culture is not for his memoirs and presar at that location that is evident. The spout is a construction of 1554 that was "restored" with PVC pipes coming out of the mouths of Lions. On site, there was a man ariando a huge pot of one of the local trades and dumping the waste of your activity on the ground. A car of the GCM was the security of the site.

  • the place is part of the history of Brazil, has the utmost importance but is dropped. Even with the renovation of part of the square the other half is still a refuge for addicts and the homeless. A shame.

  • Thanks to God, St. Vincent being retrieved with your new management. And returning to what biquinha was before, with its traditional sweets, handicraft market. Finally bringing the tourists back. This is the beautiful city of São Vicente, Brazil's first city. Tourists come to visit us. Biquinha de Anchieta square. In the background the exuberant mata preserved Morro the Barbosas. It was at this location that the Father José de Anchieta taught catechism to the Indians.

  • Lugar lindo
  • Amo esse lugar
  • Lugar agradável, no sopé do Morro dos Barbosas com exuberante Mata Atlântica, bom para se refrescar e respirar um ar no Verão !...Mas a Prefeitura poderia dar mais atenção ao local que está um tanto que abandonado !
  • Atualmente a praça virou lar de mendigos e vagabundos. Praça fedida e imunda... Cheia de lixo... Totalmente largada... Um nojo. Conseguiram acabar com a tranquilidade da praça.
  • Beautiful and historic
