Great Views
Aug 2019
Anyone can walk around here for free. There are lots of churches and it give a great feel of what early life was like. It was not very busy when I visited so made the experience very peaceful unlike some other attractions around Brazil.. It is an easy walk to the ferry.

Beautiful buildings full of history.

Not to be missed. Beautiful view over the sea and the Baia of Porto SEguro. Typical houses from the time of the arrival of the Portuguese in the 15th century.

Interesting place but everything is in Portuguese. You will need an English speaking tour guide. Luckily my wife is a Brazilian.

NO cover fee to enter, worth visiting. Gives you bit of an idea how the place looked like 500 years ago. Walking distance from city centre - around half an hour.

My husband and I visited the Centro Historico whilst on our honeymoon and its definitely an interesting place. Alot of history to be discovered with good foods, entertaining dance and unusual stalls. Definitely recommend to visit the museum and church whilst here.

A must see if you are interested in the history of places
Nov 2017 • Family
It was great to get a glimpse of the early history of Brazil. We had a guide and it is worth it to really appreciate the history of the place. There are old churches, houses and a prison. The view is really nice as well.

Expensive food and a lot of Argentinians in mobs looking for drugs, period.
I was really really really happy at this specific day so that didn't concerned me at all. Wouldn't go back. I was told that this weird situation is actually frequent. So... No.

I found the history of the arrival of Portuguese interesting and wandering the grounds of the first settlement. Plenty of photo opportunities and local artifacts to buy at reasonable prices..

Beautiful, Obligatory Visit
Mar 2016
It's a very beautiful place. There are some houses built around 1530, three churches, and a delightful view of some Porto Seguro's beaches. It's recommended to accept the help of a guide, that charges by around BRL 30 to tell you all the things, even take photos of you. There you could buy pau-brasil's seeds. I think this is an obligatory visit if you stay in Porto Seguro.
