The biggest city in Roraima has a convenient name. On the top of the map, it’s the northernmost capital city in Brazil. In addition, it’s a stop on the way to a beautiful ‘overlook’: Mount Roraima, in the north of the state, is one of the highest peaks in the country at 9,186 feet [2,800 m], on the border with Venezuela and Guiana. Its urban design has the shape of a fan, inspired by the Parisian format, with the streets leading to Praça do Centro Cívico. Nearby, the water fountains in Praça das Águas moisten the hot equatorial air – to cool down, you can also take a walk on the boardwalk by the Branco River.
