Porto Alegre
The Essential
Porto Alegre, the capital of the Rio Grande do Sul, is known throughout the world as the venue of the first World Social Forum in 2001. The city centre mirrors the state's desire for progress, demonstrated by its underground railway network, buildings and remains of European architecture, despite the prevailing insecurity and poverty. Visitors may like to know that all its monuments are accessible on foot, from the Mercado Público to the Gasômetro cultural centre.
