  • Only the view where they are parked the cars already worth the visit. It is possible to see the 3rd. Bridge and the Vitoria Bay and on the other side you can see the city of Vila Velha. The convent is built on rocks and has regular celebrations. Depending on the day and time will not be possible to go up to the top, so get ready for a long uphill walk. Two souvenir shops and has a cafeteria.

  • Historic place with wonderful view of every great victory. Difficult access to the top for people with mobility difficulties. Recommended to go because the tennis is stone staircase, so irregular and slippery. Windy up there, so women should not go to skirt or wide tops. Don't let go! Best tourist from GV.

  • Place full of local history. Simple Chapel, no major decorations. Great view of the Bay of Vitória and Praia da Costa in Vila Velha. At the top, next to the convent, there is a small museum with historical items from the site.

  • 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
  • Great views from up there. Must visit if you are in Vitoria
