The Goiás municipality is a Brazilian state in the central west of Brazil. It is famous as it has a large number of hot springs with therapeutic properties, as well as being part of a beautiful natural setting with mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. It is frequented by nature lovers and people ve like to practice sports. Goias has a great natural wealth, but it's historical center is where much of its beauty lies. In the streets and buildings we can find a witness to the occupation and colonization of Brazil in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was predominantly a mining town, well adapted to its environment, with modest architecture. The buildings are still harmoniously constructed, as a result of a proper use of both the materials and construction techniques. Its cobbled streets retain their original appearance and historic buildings of colonial architecture, with little influence of the Baroque. In its streets, there are old churches and other buildings, as well as their sweet, religious events and celebrations; you can appreciate the cultural roots that still prevail in this place.
This is a very nice park, which is located in a green area around the city centre, close to the shops. It has a pond and a fountain that splashes water; when the wind blows, it freshens all the surrounding grass. So cute! Worth a visit, and maybe a picnic with friends or family.
This national park is located in the state of Goiás, about 250 km from Brasilia. The towns of Alto Paraíso de Goiás and Cavalcante, in the northeast of the state, are located in the park. The park's objective is to preserve nature and more specifically certain kinds of vegetation. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and was originally called National Park Tocatins, which was later changed to Veadeiros National Park as it is known today. The importance of this park is marked by the fact that a very special type of vegetation, characteristic of the region and known as Closed, which is very similar to the African savannah, can be found here. In the park you can find fields and trails, varied and beautiful species of palm trees, water sources, vegetation, rock formations and extensive wildlife, all located between the valleys of the rivers Tocantins and Parana. The fauna is particularly interesting and highlighted by the swamp deer, deer, tapirs, maned wolf and armadillo, among others. It was always said that Brazil is known for being the country that hosts one of the greatest assets of wild life and this national park provides ample proof that this statement is true.
I arrived in Quirinópolis from Brasilia on March 11. I arrived after an 8-hour busride, yet I liked it from the first moment. Its small and quiet, but it has two universities, and therefore there is a young student population that frequents the bars and street parties. The following pictures show the city center, with its bars, churches, banks and tree lined avenues. There is a high red sandstone cliff 6 km from the center of which local fans of paragliding takeoff. Quirinópolis is a small town and municipality in southern Goiás state, Brazil. Livestock and agricultural products have influenced its economy as it is a main producer of both.
Praza Civica was one of the few places you can visit in Guayana. A simple, but nice place, especially on Sundays, as it is the day people can do sport and the grass is nice. I went on a Sunday, the museum was not open, I'm not sure why; I love museums. In this square, there are signs to visit other places in town, but don't be fooled, everything is far away.
