Quick look at Aracaju, capital of Brazil’s smallest state.

11 May

Aracaju is the capital of Sergipe, one of the Northeastern States of Brazil, and coincidently, the smallest one, but nonetheless, full of history and beautiful touristic sites.

Previously, we posted about Sergipe’s first capital, São Cristovão, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Now, a few images from the state’s current capital:

 Aracaju, is an example of the first planned cities in Brazil, and was built with the intention of becoming the state capital. It was founded in 1855, as the capital of Sergipe.

Enjoying the night beauty of Aracaju:
