The historical center has very little to see, because the main historical cities of Sergipe are located about 40 km outside Aracaju. If you want to see historical sites go to São Cristovao.

Stunning embroidered clothes in the shops of Centro de Turismo, very close to the Cathedral. Also, the handicraft museum. Spent a lovely time there, 5 min walking to the Municipal market, another place you can't miss.

The historical district is a limited number of structures almost overun by infills. Having seen 80 % of Portugal, the examples are worth the walk. The market is huge but a challenge and do not go alone.

Be a smart gringo. Travel in a group or pairs. Do not show a lot of money, jewelry or watches. This is worth a visit but be careful. It is a dangerous area.
