Interior – Cabaceiras, Ingá, Areia, Sousa and Araruna

The interior of Paraíba alternates between backlands and mountains, we have the second city in the state of Campina Grande, the goat festival in Cabaceiras, rock art at the Ingá Archaeological Site, the dinosaur park in Sousa and the beautiful historic city of Areias.

The interior of the state of Paraíba offers visitors various eco-tourism activities. Among them, enjoying walks through a landscape where areas of sugarcane cultivation coexist with forest, underground caves, thermal waters and waterfalls with crystalline waters. Municipalities such as Campina Grande, where the largest São João in the world is celebrated, Bananeiras and Alagoa Grande, with colonial-style buildings and artisanal distilleries of the most famous brandy in Brazil, “A Cachaça!” stand out.

As we move into the interior of Paraíba, the climate becomes drier and the landscape changes drastically. This region, known as O Sertão, is prone to long periods of drought. Here we find giant stones of particular shapes, such as in “Lajedo de Pai Mateus”, cave paintings of ancient indigenous peoples and important remains of ancient dinosaur footprints of incredible archaeological value.
