A freshly founded city in the state of Tocantins, Palmas finds itself nestled between Amazon rainforest and seaside savanna, giving the city a varied landscape.
Popular historic sites such as Catedral Nossa Senhora Das Merces and Centro Geodesico do Brasil are in your itinerary. Explore hidden gems such as Cachoeira Ecologica and Feira do Bosque. Step out of Palmas with an excursion to Zoo Museum in Porto Nacional--about 56 minutes away. There's still lots to do: walk around Cesamar Park, indulge your taste buds at Feira da 304 Sul, admire the masterpieces at Museu Historico do Tocantins, and make a trip to Praca Dos Girassois.
