Silversea Luxury Cruises À RIO GRANDE DO SUL

RIO GRANDE DO SUL

A short tidal channel does not sound like it deserves the name of Rio Grande. The ‘river’ joins the estuary waters of the large Laguna dos Patos to the Atlantic Ocean. The city of Rio Grande de Sul is named after the river, so recognises the importance of this aquatic link. Established in 1737 by the Portuguese to support and protect colonisation, the city is a great place for walking to admire historic squares and architecture, including the all-important churches.

The outer banks of the lagoon face the sea with the Praia do Cassino Beach, at 240 kilometres (150 miles) the longest in the world. Now, it is a playground for wind powered land boats. Protecting the coast, dunes and wetlands between the lagoon and the sea, an hour south of Rio Grande de Sul, is Taim Ecological Station. This diverse collection of habitats supports many aquatic wetland plants and fauna. Explore the area and you may spot water-loving mammals, such as Capybaras and Coypus, sharing the wetlands with Broad-snouted Caimans, turtles and waterbirds. Spoonbills, ibis and storks tower over smaller birds at the water’s edge. Ashore, the forests and grasses support their own bird and plant life. The passion of farming, which drove the colonization of the land, still thrives in rural areas beyond the city. Farmers are always keen to demonstrate their agricultural successes, by showing off the farms and presenting the products in culinary feasts. You cannot beat a Brazilian BBQ, which is seldom without music, movement and colour.
