Alagoas as a travel destination

Maceió, the largest city in Alagoas, is the centre of activities and offers everything your heart desires! Here you don't need a car because of the good infrastructure to discover the wonderful surroundings with the fantastic beaches. Also the close, partly very exotic nature makes this place unique. The city of Barra de São Miguel is very popular for its Atlantic beach Barra de São Miguel Beach with its numerous restaurants.

In the south of Alagoas is the city of Penedo, which has a very special artistic and cultural heritage: Here the history of the city is presented with photo exhibitions. 

For those interested in culture, the town hall, as well as the numerous musicals and concerts are certainly worth a visit. Street festivals and spontaneous celebrations show the true South American mentality and Brazilian culture!

Gastronomy in Alagoas

Fish is served in various, rather unknown forms such as moquca (cooked in coconut milk). Lobsters, shrimps, crabs and seafood are also on the menu. 

Do you know the typical Alagoas speciality called sururu? This dish are typical mussels from the area.

You can get oysters here directly from the arriving fisherman and can therefore not be surpassed in freshness.

Also grilled swordfish, (Peixes Agulha) and the classic Churrascarias (grilled meat skewers) are culinary delights of the finest!
