    The Historic Fort of São João, built by the Portuguese to defend the city of Vitoria by blocking the entrance to the channel that hump Vitporia Island, has seen better days. It was Clubhouse Saldanha da Gama who sold it to the city of Vitoria and was used as the headquarters of the Secretariat of sports. The pifia administration that takes care of the municipality from 2013, relegated her to the background and puts the sale, by public auction, out of sheer incompetence. Equipped with a large number of halls, space for Court (was grounded a pool) would serve very well as a shelter for several Secretaries for sport and tourism, for example. Does the Administration, with the result of the auction to restore a monument much younger than the strong: the State's market. A last straw. Although the inconsistencies, it's worth it, even if outside visit the monument flanked by cannon. Sad to see play out the story of Espirito Santo but worth a photo and a walk across the beach where one can view the Penedo, patrimonio de Vila velha a few meters. They say the worshipers of the Mayor of Vitoria that there will be built a muse if whoever wins the auction for SESI, suitor. ÇLamentavel, once again see our story play out whereas you pay rent on several real estate for use of City Hall. Best destination for our money, greater respect for our vote!

    The Fort St. John was dating back to the colonial period. It was built to defend the entrance to the Bay of Vitória. Was for many years the seat of the Clube de regatas Saldanha da Gama, is now completely abandoned. Does not have visitation.

    A place that tells a good story, but I don't have a schedule for visitations and has no collection to tell the story of the Fort.

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.
