  • This convent, built with slave labor, in addition to being the most important State architecture, is one of the oldest of Brazil (1558). Located on top of a cliff, can be seen in Vila Velha and Vitória, beyond the crossing of the bridge 3. In the chancel altar can still observe hundreds of parts.

  • Main tourist attraction in Vila Velha. You can get a wonderful view of Vitória Bay, the 3rd Bridge and Vila Velha. Also the convent is one of the oldest churches in Brazil, where you can find the portuguese colonial architecture.
  • Most famous place in Vila Velha! You NEED to visit it. It's amazing! You don't need to be catholic or even religious to love it! Hear me, I know what I'm talking about!
  • Wonderful historic attraction worth the long climb up for the great views.
  • Beautiful view
