    The Niteroi's Coast by the maltese JP

    This is Boa Viagem Island taken from a boat, whn your tour around our beaches in the Bay Area. That church has almost 300 years old, and the beach saw many brave european navigators and it has incredible stories of pirates!

    THIS IS THE NEW WORLD!

    Igreja da Matriz in Niteroi by RTL

    Niteroi was very important among the first portuguese settlers, in that time it was called VILA REAL DA PRAIA GRANDE, and today we can find many remainings of that barroq period just like the famous church. This one still is very important in the fishermen village of Itaipu, the IGREJA DA MATRIZ (Main Church) built in 1715.
