About Cuiabá

Cuiabá, the capital of the state of Mato Grosso, is a city with a rich history and a remarkable culture. Founded in 1719, its name has indigenous origins, coming from the Bororó ethnic group, and means "coxiponés", a type of basket and straw used in fishing. This reference to indigenous traditions is just one of the many cultural influences that have shaped the city's identity over the centuries.

With a humid tropical climate, Cuiabá is known for its high temperatures throughout most of the year. Its natural beauty is another highlight, with rivers and streams that cross the region, in addition to its proximity to the famous Chapada dos Guimarães, one of the state's main tourist attractions.

Cuiabana culture is diverse and reflects the mix of ethnicities and traditions present in the city. Regional music, such as rasqueado and siriri, sets off typical festivals and celebrations. The gastronomy is also rich and tasty, with traditional dishes such as the famous "Maria Isabel", a rice with dried meat, and "peixe na tile", prepared in a ceramic dish typical of the region.


Furthermore, religiosity is a striking feature in Cuiabá, with the presence of several historic churches, such as the Nossa Senhora do Bom Despacho Church and the Nossa Senhora do Rosário e São Benedito Church, which represent part of the city's cultural and architectural heritage.

The historic center of Cuiabá is a charming walk, with its old buildings and preserved mansions, which tell a little about the city's history. Among them is the Palácio da Instrução, which was once the seat of the state government, and Praça da República, a place for meetings and cultural events.

Cuiabá also stands out for being an important economic and political hub in the Central-West region of Brazil. The city is home to government agencies, universities and various industries, which contributes to its growth and development.

In short, Cuiabá is a vibrant and welcoming city, where tradition mixes with modernity, and local culture is valued and celebrated.
