Historic Centre of Sao Luis

The Historic Centre of São Luis, Sitio Piranhenga, lies in the center of Sao Luis, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Maranhao. It is the only Brazilian state capital founded by France, and is known for the beautiful azulejo tile work adorning many of its buildings and as a lively hub for artists and performers. Tour the slave quarters, where Africans were bought and sold, and learn about how Sao Luis was the second largest importer of African slaves. See the Casa Grande and other parts of this historic plantation, and go walking along trails by the Bacanga River. There is a small zoo where you can see toucans, monkeys, macaws, and armadillos.

Explore Sao Luis' cobblestone streets, witness the traditional capoeira performed here and enjoy the local music. Don't leave without visiting the nearby desert lagoons!
