Centro Ilhabela is very compact and easy to navigate. Most sites are contained within a three-by-three block radius. Begin your exploration along a street and a wedge-shaped park both named Coronel Julião de Moura Negrão. Their namesake was the chief captain of the village beginning in 1766 and the commander of Ponta das Canas Fort. He was also a wealthy owner of a sugarcane plantation.
