The small capital of Alagoas state is modest, yet declared a "very friendly city with a low crime rate" by the South American Handbook. This is one of the most famous beach resort towns amongst Brazilians, yet undiscovered by the international crowd.

Splendid Olinda, just 7km away, was the original state capital until it was jealously set afire by the Dutch Prince Maurice of Nassau in 1637 to elevate his city of Recife. Built on hills above Recife, with it's many esteemed baroque churches under shading palm trees, it has become an artist's colony. The city has been given World Heritage Cultural Site status by UNESCO, as well as being declared a National Monument by the Brazilian government, with funds for restoration donated by the Dutch government.
