City overview

A port city and one of the largest in Brazil, Porto Alegre is an urban hub known for its enticing mix of European heritage, historical architecture and rich cultural offerings.

Surrounded by rivers and a freshwater lake, Porto Alegre quickly became a centre for industry, transportation and business. Visitors will find themselves surrounded by both the bustle of an urban city center and natural green oases that are spread throughout and around the city. With no shortage of Neoclassical architecture, sprawling parks and rolling rivers meant for soaking up sunsets, there is plenty to set your sights on in Porto Alegre.

Parque Farroupilha is a popular respite for city dwellers. As the city’s largest park, Parque Farrouphilha is filled with monuments, green space and a diverse mix of Brazil’s natural flora. Markets are often held here on the weekends, as are concerts and community events.

Another sight to set your eyes upon while at the park is Cathedral Metropolitana, a 20th-century Neoclassical design whose hilltop presence is worth a closer look.

When it comes to culture, take in the local artwork at Museu de Arte do Rio Grande do Sul, an art museum that shines the spotlight on various artists from the area. The Fundação Iberê Camargo Museum is also worth a stop, both for the architecture and the artwork inside.

To round up your experience, plenty of shopping malls and restaurants also await.
