Teresina: Vacations and Tourism

Teresina, the first planned city in Brazil, is the capital of the state of Piauí. The name ‘Teresina’ is a tribute to Lady Teresa Cristina, last Empress of Brazil.

Located between two rivers, Parnaíba and Poti, Teresina has often been referred to as ‘Mesopotamia of the Northeast’. It has also been called ‘Green City’, owing to the many trees lining its streets. The area surrounding Teresina is called ‘Chapada do Corisco’ (flash lightning flatlands) as it has the third highest rate of lightning incidences worldwide.

The climate is tropical, warm and humid. It is the hottest Brazilian capital, where the temperature averages 28°C. The best time to visit is between May and November, when the temperature is relatively lower.

With a population of 750,000, the locals are mainly engaged in commerce and industry.
