João Pessoa, Paraíba: perfectly blending the natural, the old and the modern

João Pessoa, Paraíba: perfectly blending the natural, the old and the modern

Paraiba is one of the prime Brazilian states, situated on the Atlantic Ocean in the northeast region of the country. The state is famous for producing leather goods of various types.

The capital of the state is rich in historical monuments as well as contemporary buildings, many of which are great examples of baroque-style architecture.  Nevertheless, the greatest enchantments are still related to the sea.  In addition to the beach of Cabo Branco, with its beautiful, unique lighthouse, the beaches of Tambaú, Manaíra, and Bessa are among the most urbanized on the coast and known for their lukewarm waters.

In the capital of João Pessoa, old meets new – a great example is the newly developed Convention Center.

The Natural

      Thank you for stopping by! Sure… 😮 Thanks for asking.. and adding: Besides beautiful beaches and white sand bathed by a turquoise blue sea, Joao Pessoa (the capital of the Paraiba State) is a city with extremely unique characteristics. As reports suggest, the 3rd oldest city in Brazil, Joao Pessoa, was founded in 1585 and has a rich architectonic patrimony, including the beautiful baroque structures, like the church Sao Francisco and the convent Santo Antonio, dating back to the XVIII century.
