Paranapiacaba

(1,300+ reviews from 8 attractions)
Historic Sites Sightseeing Parks
When the British owners of the Sao Paulo Railway Company first designed Paranapiacaba in the mid-19th century, they couldn't have imagined that it would one day become a hit tourist destination. Located 61 km (38 mi) southeast of Sao Paulo, the surprisingly attractive town was built to accommodate workers transporting coffee via the local railway network. The city's name, which translates from the local Tupi language as "Where you will find the sea," is a bit misleading--the town remains about 30 km (18.6 mi) from the ocean. Nearby lakes and mountains provide excellent opportunities for outdoor tourism in Paranapiacaba. Put Paranapiacaba at the heart of your travel plans by using our Brazil trip itinerary maker.
