Places you MUST visit in Florianópolis
As you know, Floripa is a beatiful city with a lot to offer. Despite wonderful beaches, the city is known for its culture and history that’s is able to enchant who visits. With that in mind, here are some non-traditional places you must visit in Florianópolis, so you can understand a little more what is like to live in Florianópolis:
1) Bar do Arantes (Restaurant)
Located in the Pantano do Sul Beach, Bar do Arantes is a key place to learn about the fishermen history in the city. In 1958, the restaurant used to offer food and shelter for the fishermen who landed on the beach. Many students from other Brazillian cities also used to go there, that's when they started a very importante tradition: to let little notes on the walls of the restaurant, with poetry, toughts and whatever they were feeling at the moment. So, when you visit the restaurant you’re able to read notes from all over the walls and live the history of the many people who visit the place too. You also have the chance to let your own note, so you can let your mark at the place and be reminded for eternity :)
How to get there: if you are in TICEN, take the bus TICEN-TIRIO DIRETO (410), then take the bus PÂNTANO DO SUL (564).
Prices: All you can eat - R$55,00.
2) Santo Antônio de Lisboa
What a lovely place to go!! Santo Antônio de Lisboa is one of the most important cultural neighborhoods of Florianópolis. There you can learn a little more about the architecture, culture and religion of the city, in a very calm and relaxing environment. You are able to find many great restaurants in front of the beach, visit a beautiful church and take a walk through streets that have the face of the city.
