At 1628 meters, Campos do Jordão, is the highest city in Brazil. The city is located in the east of the state of São Paulo on the border of the state of Minas Gerais. At this level you may experience some few degrees minus in the winter, although there is no snow to be seen even at the nearby mountains. Some of the wealthiest families in the state has a holiday residence in the city, and in the vacation times the city’s population more than quadruples.
The city has the nickname: “Brazilian Switzerland” due to strong architectural influences from the European alps area. We visited the city about ten years ago.
Thanks for visiting!
