The Rio Grande (/ˈriːoʊ ˈɡrænd/ or /ˈriːoʊ ˈɡrɑːndeɪ/; Spanish: Río Bravo del Norte, pronounced [ˈri.o ˈβɾaβo ðel ˈnorte] or simply Río Bravo) is one of the principal rivers in the southwest United States and northern Mexico (the other being the Colorado River). The Rio Grande begins in south-central Colorado in the United States and flows to the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, it forms part of the Mexico–United States border. According to the International Boundary and Water Commission, its total length was 1,896 miles (3,051 km) in the late 1980s, though course shifts occasionally result in length changes. Depending on how it is measured, the Rio Grande is either the fourth- or fifth-longest river system in North America.

This is the oldest church in Rio Grande do Sur and it is beautiful. The church was inaugurated in 1755 but was dilapidated by the Spanish invasion in 1763. Between 1838-1847 proposals were made to erect a new church. In 1938 The National Historic and Patrimony Service considered the church a historic and cultural heritage. In 1971 the church became a Cathedral and in 1987 it became a symbol of Rio Grande. From 1996-1997 the Cathedral was completely restored. You feel the serenity as soon as you hear the very quiet music playing as you enter the church.

......unless you're into sea shells and can read Portuguese. We took a taxi from "downtown". The museum is co-located with the museum Antartica and both are free - and, as usual, you get what you pay for. It's hard to say which of the two are worse , but we decided this one is a little better. There are three or so nice exhibits with some hanging fish and a lot of exhibits with sea shells from all over the world. The exhibits are dated, only in Portuguese and not very interesting. We went through all of the museum looking for something special but had no luck.

a ilha dos marinheiros poderia ser melhor explorada como local turistico mas nao e primeiro pela falta de opçoes tem uma natureza muito bonita e de facil acesso mas as atraçoes sao muito poucas se faz a volta em toda ilha e poucas coisas se encontra e estao principalmente no lado que fica virado para rio grande tem um potencial imenso mas hoje esta praticamente vazia so restando os moradores mais velhos que ainda vivem da agricultura pois os mais jovens abandonaram por falta de um futuro melhor , mesmo assim vale a pena ir conhecer pela sua natureza .

Rio Grande still does not know how to explore its potential as a turist attraction. This is one of the examples. The building is very interesting but you cannot access the inside. The same happens to many other interesting places in town.

The house itself is very small and doesnt have many attractions. The highlight is the wood towers whici have a grat view of the city landscape and great view of the "Patos" lagoon.

passamos o carnaval na capilha, foi ótimo para curtir a natureza e a tranquilidade de um pequeno vilarejo.
praia de água doce, super calma e rasa por uma boa extensão.
o vilarejo possui várias casas para alugar, ficamos em um chalé de um senhor com apelido de seu negrinho, bem bom, simples, mas com tudo que precisávamos.
de negativo só o lixo deixado na praia, principalmente, por quem acampa no local, e não tem praticamente opção de comida pra comprar, levamos tudo pra fazer.
