Well-connected to nearby Sao Paulo, pleasant Sorocaba remains an underrated gem. Founded in 1661, the city gradually grew into one of the most productive manufacturing and industrial centers in Brazil. Though not renowned as a tourist destination, Sorocaba in fact features a lovely city center and a noticeable absence of the slums often found in large Brazilian cities. Sorocaba's tourist attractions include a cathedral, monastery, zoo, and early slave trading post. Cyclists especially can get a lot out of a tour in Sorocaba, as the city boasts 106 km (66 mi) of bike paths and lanes, in addition to other infrastructure like rental points and bike parking lots. Plan your vacation with our Brazil trip builder site and discover the best things to do in Sorocaba.

Where to stay in Sorocaba

As you might expect from a city not frequented by tourists, Sorocaba's accommodations do not feature an overwhelming concentration of options in a single area. Hotels and guesthouses spread across much of the city, though you'll find a good number in the city center, roughly within the triangle formed by the Rua Sete de Setembro, Avenida Moreira Cesar, and Sorocaba River. Stay within this district for easy access to the city's attractions, including churches, colonial-era administrative buildings, and museums. For more budget-friendly prices, opt for smaller-scale hotels rather than international chains and towering skyscrapers.
