João Pessoa, Brazil

Founded in 1585, João Pessoa – the capital of Paraíba state – is third oldest city in Brazil. Being the easternmost city in the Americas, it is often known as the city where the sun rises first. With nearly 2.7 square miles of urban forests, it is one of the greenest cities in the world. Renowned for beautiful beachfront and historical charm, the city is an offbeat travel destination.

How to Reach João Pessoa

By Air – Presidente Castro Pinto International Airport (JPA) serves the metropolitan area. Shared shuttles are available between the airport and hotels.

By Train – Passenger trains ply between Santa Rita (west) and Cabedelo (north) from the station at Napoleon Laureano Square.

By Road – PB-008, BR230, and BR101 are major highways to access. The city lies 1510 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro and 1410 miles of the national capital, Brasília. Terminal de Integração is the departure point for local buses.

Things to Do in João Pessoa

Grab a spot by the ocean at the Cabodelo before sundown to hear an orchestral piece by the famous saxophonist Jurandy or admire the exemplary architecture of Estação Ciência, Cultura e Artes at Ponta das Seixas – city’s easternmost corner.

The Centro Histórico (city center) features a day’s worth of sightseeing options. An old gunpowder store and city museum named Casa da Pólvora, history and science museums at Espaço Cultural José Lins do Rego, and central beach neighborhoods such as Tambaú, Manaíra, and Cabo Branco are major tourist attractions in João Pessoa. Museu Sacro e de Arte Popular, housed in the São Francisco church, exhibits a magnificent collection of colonial artifacts. It’s also an amazing lookout point to watch sunset over the forest canopy.

The Parque Arruda Câmara features walking trails, an 18th-century fountain, and a botanical zoo. Lined with palms, Parque Solon de Lucena is a popular city park. Several sandy spots on the 18-mile-long shoreline – from Ponta do Seixas (south) to Cabedelo (north) – are suitable for swimming and surfing. To the north, exotic islands and fishing villages in the estuary of the Paraíba River are idyllic getaways.
