Small town with cute Portuguese houses and small cafes. We walked around for half an hr. Our friends told us it tends to get busy during peak season.

A must-see if you are visiting Santa Catarina island. Full of historical buildings and one of the oldest places here. If you are around go to Ostradamus, an amazing restaurant right on the beach.

It's the most ancient place in Florianopolis, where you can feel like turning back in past. Good for a drive view or walking. Not for swimming. There are many sea food restaurants that produce their own oyster right in front on what is called oyster...More
