It´s cheap to go there from vitória city by taxi or uber, we can also catch a bus to Vila Velha bus terminal which is not far away from the entrance. At the entrance there are vans to take us uphill ( R$4,00 round trip ) or for those who like walking just go on foot. No entrance fees and we can walk inside the church and take pictures all around the place. We can see all Vitória bay and the city of Vila Velha.

Nice view from both cities, Vitória and Vila Velha. The Covent is built on the top of a hill on the Vila Velha side, by the Ocean border of the two cities.

Its worth the visit, not only because the view is awesome, but the place is very peaceful too!
If you don't want to get tired and exercise, take the shuttle to go up the hill, its a good deal.
