One of the main attractions of Sergipe, the São Francisco Valley, is a region with amazing landscapes shaped by water. The São Francisco River offers the experience of navigating through the rocks of the Xingó Canyon, a giant wall embedded in the midst of Sergipe hinterlands. The capital is Aracaju.

Xingó Lake, a reservoir of calm and navigable waters, enables catamaran, motor boat or schooner rides. The region also houses an archaeological museum, with a collection of 55,000 items, utensils and graphic records, all dating back more than 8,000 years.

Aracaju, the state capital, is known for its beautiful beaches, catamaran tours and popular festivals such as Forró Caju, in June, the main festivity in town featuring several concerts and side events, which attracts people from various cities in Brazil (Source: Embratur). More: History of Brazil
