Like many Brazilian colonial cities, Angra dos Reis was deeply influenced by The catholic Church. In a small area it is possible to find a great number of convents, churches and monuments, even at The little islands, which is very charming. One example is The Senhor do Bonfim, The Santana and Piedade Churches.

The downtown Angra was built in curves , following The wind that blows all day. Besides The churches there is little left from the old colonial style. Even though a promenade at downtown Angra can give you nice surprises..
