Palacio Anchieta, Vitoria

(900+ reviews on the web)
Government Building
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.

  • The tour that happens every day provides a true back to showing the history of the colonial period and the history of the Palace that was the site of major events. Amazing what has been offered in terms of conservation and in the rooms where they are exposed to the original Foundation. Worthy of greater praise the professionalism he has instilled in our time the vision of our ancestors.
