João Pessoa

The city of João Pessoa, the State Capital, has a coastline formed with the most beautiful beaches in the Northeast.

With its parks and avenues lined with fruit bearing and ornamental trees, João Pessoa also preserves parts of the Atlantic forest in the central area of the city, such as in the Parque da Bica and in the Mata do Buraquinho; these two reserves are important centers for study of tropical fauna and flora, and have an important role in keeping the temperature of the city.

João Pessoa is the second ranking city in the world in terms of green spaces, with more than 700 hectares of forested land, losing only to Paris. It gained this distinction in 1992, after a survey of urban centres in several countries carried out by the United Nations.


In the week preceding carnival, the “Folia de Rua” takes place, when carnival leagues parade around town. “Muriçocas do Miramar”, the largest group, draws a crowd of over 250 thousand people on Fire Wednesday, anticipating Ash Wednesday, the last day of carnival.

The “São João da Lagoa”, a popular country party in June, has been getting stronger and stronger and is already included among the main tourist events in town.
