Landmarks · Islands · Sacred & Religious Sites
Originally built as a sister city to neighboring Juazeiro, Petrolina has grown to become Pernambuco’s largest municipality. It owes nearly all of its growth to the Sobradinho Dam, the construction of which was intrinsic to the past, present, and future of the city. The mammoth construction spurred Petrolina’s creation, and irrigated farming enables this dry region to produce a huge chunk of Brazil’s fruit exports. You can sample much of the region’s produce in the lively restaurants that populate the Bododromo neighborhood. Locals recommend sampling the goat, a specialty of northeastern Brazil, with beans, cassava, and salad. Customize your holiday with our Brazil day trip planner to create an adventure that suits you.
