Introducing Penedo

Penedo, known as the capital of the lower São Francisco, is the colonial masterpiece of the state and is almost unaltered by tourism. Attractions include the city’s many baroque churches and colonial buildings and the opportunity to travel the sometimes-jade-colored waters of the Rio São Francisco. Penedo’s downtown bustles with a daily market as people from surrounding villages pour in to do their shopping.
