Serra Fluminense

Visitors flock to Serra Fluminense to escape the coastal heat and enjoy the mountain scenery of rugged peaks, lush tropical valleys, and foaming waterfalls. The area's rich European heritage entices culture-oriented visitors. Charming cities reveal old cobblestone streets and a number of 19th-century architectural gems. Strongly anchored in their Swiss and Germans roots, the towns of Petropolis and Nova Friburgo stand as monuments to the country's diverse ethnic heritage. An ideal base for touring the state capital, Guapimirim also offers easy access to pristine nature reserves and one of Brazil's first national parks, famed for its soaring rock formations.
