This tour mixes adventure and discovery, a gastronomy specialized in seafood, with a little of culture (ancient churches and the Fort Santa Catarina). For those who love large stretches of JEEP 4x4 on deserted beaches, this is is the tour not to be missed!
Visiting the Fort of Cabedelo allow discover a bit of the history of the place, since the meeting of the Portuguese with the Indians (with illustrations of cannibalism), the creation of João Pessoa (whose first name was: Our Lady of the Snows), discover the geography of the region... to the whaling that happened until the early eighties. The church "Nossa Senhora da Guia" dates from the late sixteenth century and was built by the Carmelites to evangelize the Indians of the region. The facade of limestone is sculpted in tropical baroque style with representations of tipical fruits of the region. The ruin of Good Success of the seventeenth century, has an access a little bit complicated, and impress by the fact that is being "eat" by a tree (a Gameleira).
Crossing the Paraíba river on a raft, we will cross several floating bus that allow residents of Lucena go to work on the side of Cabedelo. Lucena being a fishermen village, the local culinary is based on fishes and seafood: delicious! What impresses is that the north coast has nothing to do with the south coast: relief is different, the vegetation is different... even the weather is different. The waters of the rivers are black because of decaying mangrove plant: not lacking here crabs nor seafood in the warm and shallow waters of the coastline.
