Fodor's Expert Review Joanes

Ilha do Marajo Archaeological Site/Ruins

Roughly 23 km (14 miles) southwest of Soure, the small beach-village of Joanes was the island's first settlement. Poke around the ruins of a 16th-century Jesuit mission blown up by the Portuguese when they expelled the order from the area, bask on a beach, and have a meal in one of the town's seafood restaurants. A taxi from Soure costs about R$60 round-trip.
