Overview Of The Port Of Sao Francisco do Sul

About Sao Francisco do Sul
São Francisco do Sul is a municipality in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. It is located on the northern end of the Island of São Francisco at the entrance to the Bay of Babitonga.

The small town of São Francisco do Sul is one of the oldest settlements in the state of Santa Catarina, dating back to the 17th century. Colonial and 19th century buildings stand side by side. Visitors can explore the colonial part of town and around the central square.

Our Lady of Grace's Mother Church built in 1699 using a mixture of lime, shells, sand and whale oil is well worth a visit. Inside there is a statue of Our Lady of Grace dating from 1553 which was left there by the Spaniards who built a chapel on the island to thank for having been saved during a bad storm.

Other attractions include the History Museum, the National Sea Museum, the Municipal Market and the Marechal Hercílio Luz Fortress.

Take a boat ride out to Babitonga Bay Archipelago, two nautical miles from the town centre. In the past, Ilha da Rita (Rita Island) was a Brazilian Navy refuelling base during World War II. Ilha da Paz (Peace Island) has amazing beaches and cliffs and a beautiful lighthouse at its top. Climb Morro do Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf Hill) for a view of the bay.

There are numerous beaches to choose from including Balneário do Capri, Praia da Enseada, Praia de Itaguaçu, Praia dos Ingleses, Praia da Figueira, Praia do Salão and Praia do Calixto to name a few.

Rice and beans is an extremely popular dish in Brazil. Also eaten are various pasta and potato dishes as well as salads, dumplings and soup.
