THE Florianópolis climate it does not always collaborate with tourists. The city ends up being more visited during the vacation period – which coincides with the rainy season constant. However, the hottest months of the year remain the best to enjoy the beaches and trails better.
So, explore the region to the fullest while the sun is shining. If that annoying rain starts to fall, just use some of the tips that we will give you now. It’s always good to think about the positive side of events, so be sure to enjoy the city just because the weather was more closed. Now, let’s go to 5 suggestions of what to do in Florianópolis when it rains!
Go to different restaurants
On rainy days, the desire to taste some delicious food increases even more. If you are that type of person, looking for warmth in a good meal, I suggest you stop by the restaurant and coffee Origin. The location works based on the concept Zero waste, that is, they do not produce any type of garbage. In addition to the concern for sustainability, the Origin is incredible for those who prefer natural and healthy dishes.
Still in this healthier footprint, the Botanical restaurant is also a great option. It is focused on organic gastronomy, serving dishes that make our mouth water just for looks. Another alternative is Nipô Sushi – one of the best restaurants in the city when it comes to japanese cuisine. Both the dishes and the ambience of the place are super modern and authentic.
Discover the Public Market and the São Jorge Market
I’ll keep talking about food! The São Jorge Market is very small, but super cozy and relaxed. There you will find a variety of natural products, as well as organic fruits and vegetables. Within the market there is also a restaurant with dishes that follow this same line.
Another place that is often part of the itinerary of many tourists is the Public Market. It is bigger than the São Jorge Market, but with a not so exclusive product selection. The awning of the place does not usually withstand very heavy rains, so I recommend that you go to it only on cloudy days or with light rain. As it is right in the center of the city, it pays to visit it 😉
Visit the Cruz e Souza Palace
For those who like architecture, it is interesting to take a tour of the Cruz e Souza Palace. Most visitors are delighted with the beauty and conservation of the place! Currently, it is home to the Historical Museum of Santa Catarina. For the most curious, the space was built at the end of the 19th century and is considered even a historical heritage.
The palace is open from Monday to Sunday, with minor changes in opening hours on weekends. Oh, and the ticket for those who pay the full amount costs RS 5.00. Although it is not an extremely different attraction, it is perfect for rainy days in Florianópolis.
Discover the city’s handicrafts
Craftsmanship is always one of the most common aspects of a culture. In Florianópolis this would be no different. Fairs and shops with products local artisans are scattered throughout the city, but the greatest concentration of them is within Customs House.
One of the most common handicraft styles in Florianópolis is the bobbin lace, a tradition brought mainly by the Portuguese. To get to know this type of embroidery specifically, it is worth visiting the Centro Cultural Bento Silvério. I confess that I think this is a very “turkish” type of tour, you know? Either way, it’s a possibility when it’s raining.
Watch a play
I already know that many people will say that they can go to the theater in the city they live in, but this is still a legal activity. The Florianópolis theaters they are beautiful, occupying historic buildings wonderful. It is even possible to make a cultural tour and visit more than one of them.
One of the most sought after is, without a doubt, the Álvaro de Carvalho Theater. It was opened in 1875 and since then has been receiving visitors throughout the year. Because of its architecture, it has a super charming and classic atmosphere. THE Governador Pedro Ivo Theater it is already more modern, but his schedule also tends to please tourists and city dwellers a lot.
I hope these tips help you! And since we’re talking about a beach town, I recommend that you take a look at us posts about Boipeba. The place is charming and tends to have little rainfall in the summer months 😉
