Cruises from Rio Grande
Rio Grande is the oldest city in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, and is one of the most important ports in Brazil. The areas in the north of the state are characterised by the elevated plateau on which they lie. From this plateau, a number of low mountains stretch across the state, broken by the grassy plains of the west and the coastal zone of the east. This geographical diversity ensures that Rio Grande do Sul is home to a vast array of plant and animal life.
It is also a place with a very fascinating history.
