Palacio Anchieta, Vitoria
(4.5/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Originally built by Jesuits as the College of St. James, Palacio Anchieta has housed the seat of government for the state of Espírito Santo since the 18th century, making it one of the oldest seats of government in Brazil. The first wing was completed in 1587, replacing a Jesuit church that had stood in its place until it was burned down in a fire. Since then the palace has suffered not one but three other major fires, and has undergone several restorations. Today the palace is open to the public and houses the symbolic tomb of Father José de Anchieta, whose remains were lost at sea when the ship transporting them to Portugal sank. Using our custom trip planner, Vitoria attractions like Palacio Anchieta can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • With the exception of a few restaurants on the street Range rose, the Victory Center is not very pretty and does not offer good gastronomic options, besides being very busy Monday through Friday, then I recommend performing the walk to Anchieta Palace on Sunday morning. The visit is free and there is always some artistic display on site.
