Campinas Brazil

Located in the heart of São Paulo, the city of Campinas is characterised by its dense forests, gently rolling hills and busy metropolitan region. The year-round tropical climate makes the city’s buzzing nightlife, vibrant shopping streets and large green spaces even more pleasing to explore.

While Campinas serves as a commercial and agricultural hub, its busy pace of life is intercepted with quiet urban parks. You can stroll through the tree-lined trails at Portugal Park or enjoy a boat ride along its centrepiece lagoon. The park features a planetarium, sports field, science museum and a historical tramway. You can also visit the Monsenhor Emílio José Salim Ecological Park that was once a part of a former coffee farm or walk around Jequitibá Woods Park, a forested urban park that houses a zoo.

You’ll find a good mix of things to do and places to see in Campinas. This Brazilian city is home to Castle Tower, a free-standing structure situated at the intersection of six streets. Make your way up to its observation deck to get a bird’s-eye view of the city. To get your hands on some souvenirs and local handicrafts, visit the Hippie Fair, a weekly flea market. You can also enjoy a dance performance or watch the Campinas Symphony Orchestra play at the Municipal Theater.
