Alcantara is a old colonial town across the bay from Sao Luiz. It used to host many churches, emperors palace, and many beautiful buildings. Most of the city is in ruins beyond repair, and you can roam old arches, slave market and many buildings on the slopes of the bay. Few museums show history of the city, but there is also a museum of space program dedicated to Brazilian space program (space port is very close to the city).
