World Heritage (UNESCO)


• Goiania


Capital of the state of Goiás until 1937, this city that remains untouched by modern life has been appointed by UNESCO a World Heritage site. A colonial city with good examples of colonial architecture and cobblestone streets, is for Brazilians the city where Cora Coralina (1889-1985) lived. Her simple non-assuming verses are the quintessence of life that touch one's heart. Her house, today a museum, is one of the first buildings of the city (18th century).
