South America Continent
Brazil’s natural beauty is reflected in a wide variety of geographic locations, from the distinctive dome shape of Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, to the magnificent Iguaçu Falls and the charming Curitiba in the south, to the strange limestone formations in Minas Gerais, in the Southeast region.
The historic city of Salvador, Bahia, the first Brazilian capital, is one of the oldest in the American continent and the birthplace of Samba and Capoeira.
A broad contrast exists between the nation’s two main physical features: the densely forested lowlands of the Amazon Basin in the north and the generally open uplands of the Brazilian Highlands in the South and Southeast regions.
