Elizabeth Garden

Elizabeth Garden
The Elizabeth Garden, place where the Pousada do Vale is located is mentioned in the map of the Dutch period (1629 - 1654) as an area of cultivation of flowers, plants, herbs, vegetables, for the consumption of those who needed to live here.
This place was chosen due to the Mulugu stream which runs through this area, providing water, essential for cultivation. The Mulugu stream is formed by raining water which is absorbed by the earth and returns to the surface through a natural wellspring within the Elizabeth Garden.

The agriculture was one of sub existence, maybe made of exotic plants, which were not common in Brazil, but were a European dream to flavour their food.

In a more recent period, after the Portuguese occupation (1737), the Elizabeth Garden was used as a “village horticultural garden”. The historic sites that surround the Pousada do Vale: the well, the bridge, the bench and the access road, were built on the XVIII century by slaves and prisoners during the Portuguese colonization. More details about these constructions are still being studied.

In 1984, this area was chosen by Solon, son of Julio Grande, to establish his residence. Four years later, Fernando de Noronha became a National Marine Park. In 1992, the pousada was first developed.

In 2002, Solon partnered with Marcelo, in March of 2004 the renovation began, and in November of 2004 the new POUSADA DO VALE was created; a place where technology, refinement, simplicity and local costumes are combined to better serve you.

Julio Grande was a farmer and fisherman especially of octopus and lobsters. He arrived at the island serving the army at seventeen and was the theme of the TV program “Globo Reporter” two times, in 1986 and in 1996. He had twelve children and many grandchildren, who today represent an important part of the island’s native population. Julio Grande was known as a hard worker who cultivated watermelons at the Rata Island to furnish to Noronha’s population, and also as a man who used to free dive up to 60 meters deep, without any scuba diving equipment

How to arrive

There are three accesses to the pousada. The main access is a rocky road which originates at the Vila dos Remédios. The secondary ways are: a trail that connects us with the Cachorro’s beach, to the main nightlife spots (the Pizzaria and The Cachorro’s Bar) and to the Forth “Dos Remédios”; and another trail that reaches the main road very close to the harbour “Porto de Santo Antonio”. It’s easy to arrive here, but it’s difficult to want to leave.
