    Victory Cathedral is beautiful and still keeps the provincial climate of the first residents of the Victory Center. For tourists it's a full plate. Recommend that the visit by taxi or uber, seen the difficulty of parking lot.

    At the top in the city centre and near another Church capelela antiquissima Santa Luzia. Worth the visit see two epocas at the same time. Go down the Hill and you will find the teatro Carlos Gomes. Walk in the sea and vera the old port where ore trains literally dumped the raw ore in ships, making a noise. Destivado. If you have corragem take a boat and cross the channel. on the other side and the valley station with musel restaurant locomotive and mine railroad from Valley, Great place to see Vitloria the other way.

Budget-conscious travelers will find side street hostels appealing, as well as the more basic among the collection of pousadas (guesthouses) in the city.
