Route of Emotions

6 reviews
This tour is one of the most breathtaking trips one can do in Brazil. It will take you through three different states in the north-east of Brazil, from Maranhão and Piauí to Ceará. You will have a chance to walk barefoot through an unbelievably beautiful landscape of million dunes and lagoons in the national park of Lençóis Maranhenses, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of fishing villages, try wind-based watersports and experience the charming culture of the North-East of Brazil. You can start in either São Luiz or Fortaleza, and we will adjust the trip depending on the place of arrival.

This the official residence of the State Governor. Everything is well kept and the historical furniture fantastic. There are free guided tours everyday but mondays. Check with a local guide.

The staff are super sweet. There is very little to do in Sao Luis and places are to visit are very small and quick so you can easily get all done in a day. Check opening times before you go. We went on a Saturday morning. It's free as is the 15 minute guided tour which was nice. You can only see some of the rooms as the others are used. They allow photo's but without flash.

Considering that Sao Luis is the worst place for attractions that I have visited in Brasil, I give 5 stars for this visit because the attendance was good, the tour is for free and you can learn a little bit about the history of the place. You can also have free access to water, toilets and air conditioner in the museum.

The governor still uses it, which is why there are portions of this house that the guides will forbid you from taking pictures in. It has some old pictures and dining tables used by formerly important and current potentates. If you are a foreigner, you will soon forget it. However, there is a machine that takes pictures of your group in front of an ornate staircase, which is kind of fun. You'll spend about 20 minutes here, which is more than enough.

This incredible building is the home of the Governor. Part of the building is open to visitors, and they offer free guided tours. The tour lasts about a half hour and is worth the time.
