Whether traveling to a Brazilian city but do you not know where to start? So, this blog is for you. Here you learn cultural and tourist information about the 10 most visited cities of Brazil.

Gaucho Highlands

The Gaucho Highlands is the mountainous region in the northeastern portion of Rio Grande do Sul. This mountainous region is home to many Brazilians of German and Italian descent. Consequently, the cities in the Serra Gaúcha reflect German and Italian influences through their architecture, gastronomy and culture.


The region was settled by European immigrants during the 19th century. Germans started arriving in 1824 and Italians in 1875. Germans settled in the lowlands, close to river springs, while Italians populated the highlands. As a result, the region has a unique blend of German and Italian cultures, reflected in the local architecture and cuisine.
