FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF ESPÍRITO SANTO

UFES is the leading university of higher education in Espírito Santo. It was founded on May the 5th in 1954. The university has four campuses, with its main campus being located in Goiabeiras, Vitória. The Goiabeiras campus has a large green area, encouraging walks and making it a great location for birdwatching. The area has a very rich environment because it is surrounded by mangroves under environmental protection. In addition, the campus is home to several cultural facilities, like a theater, a student radio station, an astronomical observatory and planetarium, a water park, among others. The university has a restaurant, which can also be used by guests at an affordable price. For more gastronomic options, please visit the Rua da Lama, located opposite the campus. The place is known for its wide range of restaurants and traditional pubs.

TIPP: Birds are used to humans. These birds are docile and can be observed/photographed easily.
