Our previous Best of Brazil posts have featured a couple interesting things to be found in the city of Santos. For this last post in the series featuring our travels at the beginning of 2023 we will feature pictures of some other interesting things we saw and did in Santos.
As with many older cities, Santos once had an extensive trolley line. Evidences of it can be seen all over the city. Now there is just one active branch, that exists only for tourists. It was a short, but fun, ride.
If you are any kind of soccer fan you will recognize the name “Santos” as the team for which the late soccer great Pele played, when he wasn’t winning World Cups for the Brazil squad. There is now a very interesting museum in Santos (right across from the trolley station) dedicated to his memory.
As Providence would have it, there was a period movie being filmed in Santos on the day we visited, and antique cars abounded.
It was a drizzly day when we went to the beach, but there were still some pretty cool things to see.
There are several options for boat rides in Santos. This was one of the highlights of our trip.
Santos is a wonderful city, and it is high on our list of places to visit again.
