Florianopolis City Tour Description:
In addition to over 40 gorgeous beaches, “Floripa” – the city’s nickname – has plenty of other attractions. On the Florianopolis City tour, you will see the historical center where the little yellow and the charming metropolitan cathedral is located.
In the most important square of the city, we’ll get acquainted with Praça Novembro XV (15th of November Square, named after the date in which the republic was proclaimed) where the imposing Palace Cruz e Souza stands, which now houses the historical museum of Santa Catarina.
The Palace is important in many ways as it’s staged many important moments in Brazilian history throughout different points in time.
It hosted both Brazilian emperors during their visits to the city and was stormed by revolutionaries during the federalist revolution in 1891. It seems this palace has seen its share of history.
But obviously, in a city like Floripa, the beaches and lagoons are still a must-see. One of our other stops is one of the most famous natural landmarks in the city, the Lagoa da Conceição.
Nowadays the lagoon is used by locals and visitors alike for water sports, picnics, and swimming. Its warm and calm waters are ideal for families to relax and keep an eye on the children.
