From series “Top 13 Most Fantastic and Colorful Streets and Quarters”
Lenght: 500 meters.

In the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre there is an amazing street Goncalo de Carvalho. Its length is 500 meters. Both sides of the street are decorated with tall trees, crowns of which merge to form an incredibly beautiful natural arch. If you look at this street from a bird's-eye view, it will seem that instead of the busy highway a carpet of green leaves lies there. Huge Tipuana trees were planted along the road more than 80 years ago. Over the decades, they have grown to an impressive size. Closely intertwined branches form a natural canopy over one of the most bustling and busy city streets.

Goncalo de Carvalho Street, Brazil Today, an amazing street Goncalo de Carvalho is a landmark of national importance. In 2005, it was threatened with destruction. It was decided to build a shopping center not far from the street. Mighty trees were detaining from construction. Local residents asked the city authorities to keep the old street and its trees.

Top destination around Goncalo de Carvalho Street - Porto Alegre

When the Spanish attacked the territory of Colonial Brazil in 1763, there was a threat of capturing the state’s capital. That is why it was decided to move the capital to another settlement, namely, to Porto Alegre. The capital city hasn’t changed since that time. Nine years later, the city officially became the capital of the state. The new status gave a powerful boost to all spheres of life. The city’s population was growing, the borders of Porto Alegre were expanding, and the economy was flourishing. The Civil War, which started in the 40s of the 19th century, was a hard period in the history of Porto Alegre. The city survived several sieges and attacks of the southern elites. Despite the inflicted damage, Porto Alegre managed to recover and regain its former importance.

There are no beaches in the city. Local people often go to Rio de Janeiro to enjoy sunbathing and swimming in the ocean. Despite this, there are interesting places that are worth visiting in Porto Alegre. Without a doubt, the Ruy Tedesco International Sport Club Museum is one of these venues.
