The capital of the state of Tocantins, Palmas is known for its superlatives: the city features the hottest summers in Brazil and is home to Praça dos Girassóis, the biggest plaza in Latin America, with an area of 6,146 ft2 [571 m2]. Here, you can learn a little about the country’s past through such monuments as the Memorial Coluna Prestes, designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer. Anyone looking for more contact with nature can take advantage of the waterfalls and rivers in the city, which is also the main route to the beauty of Jalapão National Park.
