A beautiful island...

This is the place I luckly was born. An island of over 200,000 habitants and a total of 42 beaches including couple that still can not be reached by car.. It is a great place to visit and live as well, as an example of that it is very common to know people that once came to visit and decided to move in...

The city view

This is the view of the city (central area) from the Morro da Cruz. From here it is possible to see all the buildings in downtown and also the bridge (Colombo Salles and Pedro Ivo Campos on the left, and Hercilio Luz on the right).

The Island

Florianópolis is an island located in the southern Brazil; it is the capital of the state of Santa Catarina. Its population is about 300 thousand people; its economy is based mainly on tourist agencies, government, and universities. Recently, it was chosen one of the The Ten Most Dynamic Cities by Newsweek magazine. But it has been chosen as the city with the best quality of life in Brazil many times before that.
