Capela de Santa Luzia, Vitoria

(3.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
The city’s oldest religious structure is Capela de Santa Luzia, built in the 16th century of stone, lime, and clay tiles. This simple rectangular building is a national landmark, and has played an important role in the history of the city and the entire region. You can take a free guided tour of the chapel, or drop in on your own when you visit the city’s historic Upper Town. Visitors often remark that this building seems frozen in time, having kept almost all of its features, now several centuries old, completely intact. Don’t miss a chance for a quick stop at a timeless place, unaffected by change and impervious to the modern times.

  • A place worth knowing! stay in Vila Velha. The location is very nice, as well as attraction that is the chapel. Panoramic view of the entire city. Ride for breath. You have option to go up to the place (1.5 km), (a, a) or use the Van transport, offered by the administration of the chapel.

  • Almost a hidden gem this is a very old chapel, apparently one of the oldest. Only small but well worth seeking out.
  • Foi também um espaço que promoveu a arte em Vitória. Várias exposições aconteceram no local. Lembro , era 1982 quando participei de um Salão de Arte e tive o prêmio de melhor desenho a grafite.
