Take a trip through time into the history of Maranhão. Experience almost 400 years of this multi-ethnic island city, with its rich popular culture and prominence as an important historic site of the Americas.
The biggest attraction in the city is the late 17th century historic centre, founded by the French and occupied by the Dutch before falling under Portuguese rule. The city has preserved the original rectangular street plan in its entirety and thanks to a period of economic stagnation in the early 20th century, an exceptional number of fine historic buildings have survived, making this an outstanding example of a Portuguese colonial town.
Walking through the streets of the historical centre of São Luis and meeting its residents, is an unforgettable experience.
The city enchants with its beauty, legends and history.
You also have the opportunity to visit a handicraft market on the tour.
