    The edge of Petrolina is Urbanized, clean, overlooking the the São Francisco River and Ponte Presidente Dutra. Great place for hiking, bike rides. Beautiful sunset to late afternoons

    It's strange to find such popular roads at night in Brazil, but in fact in Petrolina the Riverwalk is full of good restaurants and meeting place of locals.

    I passed the bridge towards BAHIA, arrived in the city of Juazeiro and there we visited the headquarters of the seventh-day Adventist Church to the northern region of the State. The new headquarters is under construction right next to the beautiful Central Church of Juazeiro is right in front of the São Francisco River. #OrgulhoCristão

Where to stay in Petrolina

Much of Petrolina’s activity centers around the snaking Sao Francisco River, and the majority of the city’s hotels can be found here. These vary in quality but offer easy access to restaurants, bars, and stores as well as the city of Juazeiro, which sits just across the bridge. Those who want to enjoy the youthful buzz and affordable eateries that the University provides should look for accommodations near or on Dom Malan Square. Smaller guesthouses and bed and breakfasts tend to be less expensive but are generally tucked away in residential areas.
