• Cuiabá

The capital of the Mato Grosso State was founded on the discovery of gold on the region by bandeirantes, on the beginning of the XVIII century. From that time, the city keeps the narrow streets that can be seen on the oldest part of the city center. Cuiabá is on the geodetic center of Brazil. The city is a mandatory stop to those going to visit the natural beauties of the Mato Grosso State, like the Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Guimarães (Chapada dos Guimarães National Park) and the North of Pantanal. A good option is to visit Águas Quentes, which has an aquatic park containing natural thermal water and a vast forest reserve. The city has good restaurants of typical food of Pantanal. History, culture and environment of the Mato Grosso State can be seen on the Museu de História Natural e Antropologia (Natural History and Anthropology History Museum) and on the Museu Rondon (Rondon Museum), dedicated to the indigenous tribes on the region. Authentic indigenous craftwork, adornment, arc and arrow and ceramics objects can be purchased on Artíndia, shop of the federal institution Funai (Fundação Nacional do Índio – National Foundation of the Indian).
