Sao Cristovao is one of 18 cities known as World Heritage sites. It's the 4th oldest Brazilian cities since January, 1st of 1590. Right there in the middle of the road from Salvador to Olinda, stands a treasure from the colonial period in Brazil.

Far away from Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro is Salvador, and then Olinda.

It was a Hispanic name, and the reason what UNESCO has include its Sao Francisco Square on the list of World Heritage sites.

There you can find the Plaza Mayor, a common meeting space in Spanish-American cities, as well as typical Portuguese buildings.
