What we will do
  • A coach takes us to see the main historic and tourist places of which we can take a few pictures.
  • Once off the coach, we start our walk in the centre of the city. We will admire the late 17th-century Saint George of Ilhéus Church, the House of Artists and the House of Jorge Amado Foundation, a homage to the author who upheld and promoted local culture.
  • We then visit two places mentioned in Jorge Amado’s novels - Bar Vesùvio, the city's oldest and most popular bar and restaurant, and Bataclã cabaret.
  • We discover the magnificent St. Sebastian cathedral and admire the theatre of Ilheus, Avenida 2 de Julho and Paranaguá palace, built in 1907.
  • As the history and economy of this place are based on plantations and the cultivation of cocoa, our excursion continues in a Brazilian chocolate shop.
  • Another unique characteristic of this city are the wonderful beaches, which we can admire thanks to a sightseeing tour.

What you need to know
  • We recommend that you book early because only a limited number of places are available.
