"You could be in Portugal" São Luís by johnkebab

São Luís Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 226 photos

Sao Luis is a beautiful old town on the coast, its split into 2 halves, the one half a Bohemian, jazzy and traditional half, with old portuguese buildings all over, complete with the famous outside tiling that you find all over towns in Portugal.
The other half is a young, vibrant city, much more spread out but for me, although it has the beaches, the modern restaurants and discos, it lacks the real feeling that you find in the old half.
This is a photo of the Church in the town square in the old half of Sao Luis.

When you're walking through sao luis you can really fell history catching up with you, the buildings so old and the architecture so colonial, its not hard to imagine all the people and characters that have trod through them before you over the years.
