One of the most beautiful Brazilian destinations

A city with some nice beaches

Now here is a small slice of paradise, an island 51km long and 18km wide linked to the mainland by the longest suspension bridge in Brazil, the Hercilio Luz Bridge.

There is no true agreement between historians and anthropologists as to how and when the first civilisations developed in the southern Americas. Historians and researchers like Graham Hancock using celestial alignment have dated some ancient civilisations to 10,500 BC.

The evidence of the Piri Reis map that predates Columbus shows not only the entirety of South America in great detail before any modern Europeans arrived there back in the 1600s. Not only that, the Piri Reis map also shows the land mass of Antarctica in such detail that modern science only discovered in the 1960s.
