  • A large-sized square in the geodetic heart of Brazil. From this point Palmas grew. Care was taken to honor all indigenous ethnicities, the origin of the formation of the region, the planning of the city starting from this super Quadra. It is worth to accompany the sunset of this region as well.

  • My husband and I went to the square of the sunflowers and visited the Palácio do Araguaia, with we can understand a little of the birth of Tocantins, a history of many fights and victories! It's worth knowing.

  • A quaint park to walk around which also houses the central government building. The palace stands at the very center of Palmas, but also all of Brazil.
