Itinerary
Pass By:  
Catedral Metropolitana de Florianopolis
Florianópolis is known in Brazil as the “Island of Magic”. Its breathtaking beaches are a paradise to surfers and beach goers alike. It is thought by many as the best place to unwind and get in touch with your inner self. It holds a lot of history as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the country In addition to over 40 gorgeous beaches, “Floripa” – the city’s nickname – has plenty of other attractions. On the tour, you will see the historical center where the little yellow and charming metropolitan cathedral is located.

Praca XV de Novembro
In the most important square of the city, we’ll get acquainted with Praça XV de Novembro (15th of November Square, named after the date in which the republic was proclaimed) where the imposing Palace Cruz e Souza stands, which now houses the historical museum of Santa Catarina. The Palace is important in many ways as it's staged many important moments in Brazilian history throughout different points in time. It hosted both Brazilian emperors during their visits to the city and was stormed by revolutionaries during the federalist revolution in 1891. It seems this palace has seen its share of history.

Great tour guide who was very accommodating to me as the only non-Brazilian. This tour is mostly about visiting beach locations around Floripa and not about culture or history. I was hoping to get to a museum and one of the forts.
