  • A place to get history and knowledge, not to mention and a landmark of Espirito Santo, but lack a lot of structure in place, I found a little abandoned.

  • One of the first places colonized in the Holy Spirit, the traditional neighborhood of Prainha is a corner more than history. The site housed from the weather and enemies was also home to society before. Therefore, the place has always been home to a human group and strategic location was turned into a historical site. Thinking on conservation, the city instituted there the ground Zero of the city, bordering an area that became known as historical site of Prainha. The place serves for the locals and tourists, with a beautiful green area and open space.

  • The parque da prainha has a beautiful view of the entrance to the Bay of Vitória/Vila Velha. Of fante to the sea, to your left is the headquarters of the Navy of Brazil and to your right is the headquarters of the Brazilian Army, taking on the top of the Hill the Convento da Penha. In front of the entrance to the barracks is the cave where Peter lived Palaces as well as the gateway to the ancient lift to the convent which is all sidewalk with rocks "rough". There's fishmongers where you can buy fresh fish and seafood.

  • Operated by the City of Vila Vehla, Prianha Park is host to several large and regional Festivals & Fair gatherings throughout year. Located at the base of the historiically-significant hilltop Conventa de Penha, this Park is the sight of the annual Feast of Penha. Feast of Penha is the 3rd largest religious festival in Brazil with origins in the 16th century. During 8 days of celebration, one million people participate in the tributes to Nossa Senhora da Penha beginning on Easter Sunday, continuing until Monday of the following week. In 2017 Prainha Park was the site of weekend-long 1st Annual Vila Vehla Jazz & Blues Festival. The Chocolate Festival attracts over 300,000 and Feast of the City celebrates the first arrival of Portuguese settlers to the State of Espirito Santo in 1535. Festivities for Earth Day; Carnivale, major race/fitness events are all held the Prainha Park facilities which are situated adjacent to a boat marina, Brasilian Naval Training Camp and an active fishing industry-yard. There's a spectacular from the Park's shoreline of Vitoria's skyline across the ocean waters. Several other historical gems are within the immediate few blocks.
  • Could invest more in the region, because it is a historical point. I think it's abandoned.
