Maceio Excursions & Tours: Delve into the streets of Maceio, one of Brazil’s most exuberant cities, on this tour of its most famous landmarks. Capital of the Alagoas region, this dream-like concrete jungle is surrounded by the whitest beaches and the bluest seas, making it a compulsory go-to for beach-lovers from all around.
On this panoramic tour of the city you will get to learn more about the city’s many wonders. You’ll be accompanied at all times by a guide who, with his or her well-versed knowledge of the region’s history, will give you a crash course lecture on all you need to know about Maceio.
Stroll over to the traditional shopping district, where you will appreciate how locals craft and sell many beautiful products on the spot. Also visit the Museum of Image and Sound for highly interesting exhibitions, as well as at the Maceio Commercial Association. Discover Maceio’s most renowned squares: the Praca Marcilio Dias, the Praca Visconde de Sinimbu, the Praca Dom Pedro II and the Praca Floriano Peixoto.
Later on, you will see other impressive buildings such as the Legislative Assembly or the Metropolitan Cathedral of Nossa Senhora dos Prazeres, a magnificent pearly white construction that stands in contrast with the surrounding green. All these constructions will give you a good insight into colonial architecture, art and religion. You will also see Sao Goncalo do Amarante, a breath-taking vantage point of the city, the Church of Bom Jesus dos Martirios and the Governor’s Palace.
