João Pessoa is a coastal city near the mouth of the Paraíba River in eastern Brazil. Its old town is known for its baroque and art nouveau architecture. The 16th-century São Francisco Church has Portuguese painted tiles in its courtyard and an ornate, gold-adorned chapel. Tambaú and Cabo Branco beaches are lined with bars and nightclubs, plus shops selling local woodcarvings and pottery.
