São Luís, Brazil, is the capital of the Brazilian state of Maranhão, which is situated in the northeast of this huge country. More than six-and-a-half million people live in this state, while around one million people live in the capital São Luís. Historically, São Luís is the only state capital in Brazil, which originally was founded by the French in the seventeenth century. However, you cannot see any French influence in the architecture. In fact, the French reign lasted only for three years, when the Portuguese conquered the settlement. São Luís is well known for the best and largest preserved heritage of Colonial Portuguese architecture of all Latin America. Besides tourism, food production, aluminum processing, and the busy Port of Itaqui are very important for the local economy.

The famous historic centre offers beautiful churches, mansions, and buildings, influenced by the Colonial Portuguese architecture. Most of these beautiful old buildings originate from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, a bit of refurbishment would be necessary. Architecture lovers should not miss the Teatro Arthur Azevedo. This lovely neoclassical theater was opened in the early nineteenth century.

The city attracts visitors with more than thirty kilometres of beaches where you can swim, go for a walk, or relax. But be careful with the current, as it can be extraordinarily strong. Ponta d'Areia is one of the most popular beaches in the area.
