Nice view from both cities, Vitória and Vila Velha. The Covent is built on the top of a hill on the Vila Velha side, by the Ocean border of the two cities.

Its worth the visit, not only because the view is awesome, but the place is very peaceful too! If you don't want to get tired and exercise, take the shuttle to go up the hill, its a good deal.

If you are in the area, - You must visit this place. Even as a non-religious person, I found it fascinating, its from the 1500's originally, and the views are amazing. Its so full of history!

This is a very historical place built in the mid 1500s. The view here is more than super. You can see from vila velha to victoria. You can also attend mass daily.
