Tourist Spots




Tourist spots are much more than places to visit and take photos. They are opportunities for learning, personal growth, and connecting with different cultures. By visiting them, we open ourselves to the world, broaden our horizons, and build memories that will be cherished forever.

Examples of tourist spots:
Lençóis Maranhenses (Maranhão):a sea of white dunes stretching for miles, framed by a lake of crystal-clear water. A surreal and unforgettable landscape.
Amazon Rainforest (Amazonas):the largest and most biodiverse biome on the planet, home to exuberant fauna and flora, as well as indigenous communities that preserve their ancestral customs.
Iguaçu Falls (Paraná):a set of imposing waterfalls on the border between Brazil and Argentina, considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the Modern World.
Fernando de Noronha (Pernambuco):a paradisiacal archipelago with crystal-clear waters, coral reefs, and breathtaking landscapes. A perfect destination for those seeking to relax and connect with nature.

The Friburgo cable car, officially called the Teleférico do Suspiro, is located in Praça do Suspiro, in the city center of Nova Friburgo, in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The square, which is also a tourist spot in itself, is located at Rua General Sampaio, 245, in the Centro neighborhood.

The cable car is one of Friburgo’s main tourist attractions and one of the most sought-after by visitors. It offers a panoramic view of the city and the region, at an altitude of 1,380 meters, from the top of Morro da Cruz. The ascent takes about 8 minutes and provides a unique experience, allowing you to observe the red roofs of the houses, the cobblestone streets, the lush green mountains, and even Guanabara Bay on clear days.
