2/16.- Porto Seguro, Cidade Historica, Matriz de Nossa Senhora da Pena
We start this virtual tour in the Historical Center, where you find a colonial church, a lighthouse and some old houses. It was here that the first Europeans settled in Brazil.
To get to the Historical Center you have to climb some steps you will find on the way from downtown Porto Seguro to the beach. Alternatively, you can follow the road.
In this picture you can see the Matriz de Nossa Senhora da Pena, from 1730. Inside the church you can admire an altar with an image of
São Francisco de Assis from the 16th century, the oldest in Brazil.
