São Luís Travel guide
São Luís : Michelin's recommendations
São Luís is a melting pot of Indian, African and European influences, as shown by the city's unique architectural and cultural heritage. You can't miss the residences in the historical centre with façades covered in azulejos, just as you might see in Lisbon, nor the reggae rhythms that enliven a night out on the town… And if you come in June make sure you see the Bumba-meu-Boi, a real satire of life in the colonial estates that developed in the 17C.
