The best thing to do in Ilhéus is explore the old streets. The center has several old, gargoyled buildings such as the Prefeitura.
Ecoparque de Una
The Ecoparque de Una is a lush Atlantic rain-forest reserve 60km south of Ilhéus. Here, guides lead visitors on a 2km trail, including...
Igreja de São Jorge
The Igreja de São Jorge is the city’s oldest church, dating from 1556, and houses a small sacred-art museum.
Lanchonete Jorge Amado
Have a morning coffee on the tiny patio of the literary-themed Lanchonete Jorge Amado , just across from the Prefeitura.
A stand serving sandwiches and fresh fruit juices at bayside tables.
