    Church is located right in the center of town. Between the Cathedral and the Palacio Anchieta. Narrow street and middle erma. I visited on a Saturday, before noon and it was closed.

    Linda Church, with a beautiful altar, located in upper town, in the Centre of the capital Victoria. Is not suitable to go at night.

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.
