  • We didn't do the visitation was internal closed, but thanks for visiting. Began to be built in the late 16th century by the Franciscan fathers at the request of the second Donee of captaincy of Espírito Santo. Was composed of church dedicated to San Francisco, monastery/cloister and the chapel of the third order of penance. This set was later added a cruise at the start of the slope (1744) and finally a "provisional" cemetery, which operated from 1856 to 1908. Curiosity: the old Franciscan complex started in 1591 and considered the oldest in southern Brazil, left only the facade of the Church, including Bell Tower and the ramparts of the old monastery. The porch (with a veranda) in arcos we see today is a reconstruction done in the Decade of 1950. Inside there is a permanent exhibition with pieces that are part of the structure and help tell the story. (Unfortunately not visit!) The convent also has monitors to receive visitors. They roam all areas and show each of the details. Is preserved also the chapel of our Lady of the snows, built in the 18th century, which served as a mortuary chapel until 1908, when it was inaugurated the Municipal Cemetery of St. Anthony. Do you believe if I tell you that they found bones stashed, or buried in the walls of the chapel. That's the honest truth!

  • As well as other points of interest and historic Victory, the San Francisco Convent tabbed account, at no cost. The explanation of the tab in this case was critical to understand the history of the site. As underwent many modifications, I think the visit without being guided is boring. But is very worthwhile!

  • Open to visitation with local guide that tells the story of the construction and the activities at the time, very interesting and instructive.

  • Nice place
  • Unattended during night, those responsible for this convent give us today, on February 26, a horror show and agony with the firing of the bells at approximately 2:40 if extending so far, 4:40 h, and probably for the rest of Sunday!!! Who to turn to in a time of this?? Police have been notified, # wattree # 156 has already been notified. So far, nothing. Concerned with public assets, concerned about the neighborhood

Where to stay in Vitoria

The two main neighborhoods to stay in when exploring Vitoria are Praia do Canto and the area close to Parque Moscoco. Hotels dominate the selection here, with simple rooms in chain and independent lodgings, alongside luxury options. Budget-conscious travelers will find side street hostels appealing, as well as the more basic among the collection of pousadas (guesthouses) in the city. Stay closer to the airport, or the main bridges leading off the island, if you wish to get out of town on a regular basis to explore other areas of the state.
