About Porto Alegre

Porto Alegre is the capital of the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The city is an important cultural and business center of southern Brazil. The city of Porto Alegre is multicultural. A set of multiple expressions, of various faces, ethnic and religious origins makes Porto Alegre a rare space where contrasts and differences are well received and always welcome. The city was founded in 1772 by Azorean Portuguese couples.

During the following centuries, it welcomed immigrants from all over the world, particularly Germans, Italians, Spaniards, Africans, Poles and Lebanese, including Catholics, Jews, Protestants and Muslims. Porto Alegre is a bustling hub of recognized quality services and infrastructure, the base of large national and international companies and one of the main destinations for international events in Brazil. The city is located only 120 kilometers from the pleasant Serra Gaucha.
