One can discover a little of the local history by taking a walk through the area and enjoy the old streets, plazas, staircases, fountains, monuments, churches, and the buildings' architecture and their uncountable details: tiles, towers, door frames, and balconies. For those who enjoy nature, as an island, the City offers a number of white sandy beaches such as Ponta d'Areia, São Marcos, Calhau, Olho d'Agua, and Aracagi. The local culinary offers vistors a number of exotic dishes among which the most famous are arroz de cuja, peixada, and torta de camarao. Also not to be missed are the tropical fruit juices and cakes.
