Because spring!! Check out 9 perfect flower destinations to visit this season

Ah, spring has come! It’s time to say goodbye to cold days and prepare for the sun and milder temperatures… The flower season in Brazil starts today, September 22, and will last until December 21. This is the most charming and charming time in most of the country. To help you choose the best travel destinations this season, we’ve brought you nine blooming city options that could be great requests!

1. Holambra, Sao Paulo

Holambra, known as the city of flowers, is located about 130 km from the capital. The “Brazilian Netherlands”, as they are also called because they are one of the main strongholds of Dutch immigration to Brazil, present European architecture on the streets and avenues. Colorful houses, windmills, parks and bicycles are part of the tourist attractions of this place. In the region, visitors will find wide flowering fields, charming cafes, museums, restaurants and breweries. This is a great place to visit in the spring in Sao Paulo.

Those who will be there before September 25 can still enjoy Expoflora, the largest exhibition of plants and flowers in Latin America. Our colleague Daniel Ackstein was there and wrote down all the details in a post: Expoflora de Holambra flower festival is back after two years: stay tuned for news and sights! Verify!

2. Curitiba, Parana

Curitiba combines the beautiful scenery of over 30 parks and forests with the atmosphere of a big city. For contemplation of flowers, the main point is the Botanical Garden, where the most famous postcard of the city, the glass greenhouse, is located. This is a good place when you want to save money. Walks in forests and parks, for example, are free – curiously, many of them were built to protect against rain in places that were flooded on days of large numbers of people.
