  • We're going to the monastery at least once a year and always take a relative or friend who visits us. Made several renovations and expansions in recent years and the area is very beautiful. I highly recommend the retreats. Check the website of the monastery.

  • Wonderful place to relax the noise of cities and listen to your heart. Unique religious culture, people receptive, warm, kind and who likes realnente. You'll find yourself with nature and will know more of you. It's worth checking out. See you there, recharge your energy.

  • Horrible. Nothing indicates hours of operation for the public and lost trip opens Sunday and the person who opens the gate is quite rude. Total disappointment ...

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.
