  • In addition to St. Paul's Cathedral, there are about 30 World Heritage Sites in the area from Senado Square, including the battery, fort, and church. It is important to conduct a preliminary survey because you will miss the famous places. When you go up to the fort, the sunset is beautiful.

  • This was as is described, the facade of an old building. There is a crypt downstairs and a museum of collectables at the back. We enjoyed the latter as it was air-conditioned!  more »
  • Maybe a place you should have been. Huge pressure and a lot of pictures are taken. The trees on the right next to this huge 'façade' are enormous. Furthermore, quickly back to the narrow streets with less tourism and specialist shops.
