Joinville

Colonized by Germans, Swiss and Norwegians, Joinville preserves with affection its origins in the architecture, culture, typical gastronomy and vocation for work and development. The largest city and industrial region in Santa Catarina, it is also one of the main touristic destinations of Santa Catarina, offering options which range from excursions to points of historical interest, as the Museu Nacional de Imigração (National Immigration Museum), to some of the largest cultural events in the country, for example the Dance Festival. Dance is indeed an icon of Joinville. The city is proud to house the only branch of the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre. With an excellent infrastructure of hoteliery, trade and services, Joinville is a reference in events tourism, also standing out in activities linked to nature and rural life, which you can note in trips to Serra Dona Francisca (Dona Francisco Mountain Range), Estrada Bonita (Beautiful Road) and the regions of Piraí and Vale do Quiriri (Quiriri Valley).
