Teresina is the capital and most populous municipality in the Brazilian state of Piauí. Being located in north-central Piauí 366 km from the coast, it is the only capital in the Brazilian Northeast that is not located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. With 814,439 inhabitants, Teresina is the 19th largest city in Brazil, and the 15th largest state capital in the country. Together with Timon in the nearby state of Maranhão, it forms a conurbation with a population of about 953,172 inhabitants; the entire metropolitan region of Teresina has over 1,135,920 inhabitants. The only natural barrier that separates Teresina from Timon is the Parnaíba river, one of the largest in the Northeast.

Igreja Sao Benedito

Reviewed By GersonP - Teresina, PI

It is one of the spots to visit. Despite its location (meter from Karnak) and that it has been there since early days of town, there is nothing else one could consider. From the inside it is almost Franciscan, neither luxury nor architectural bias one could get interested in.

Even though, 4 de setembro is relatively big, the building needs better maintenance inside and outside.

Estaiada is such a beautiful bridge for you to look at -- at night it changes its color. So nice!

It is one of the most beautiful view of Teresina. Sometimes the elevator doesn't work but the place itself is calm e interesting to visit. You pay less the $4 dollars to go to the top, and its important to know that the place is closed on mondays.

Good option for the weekend or a holiday. I recommend you visit the park early in the morning or late afternoon for obvious reason: it's hot outdoors!!
Anyway, soon all the trees will grow enough to lessen the heat and bring a better environment.
The park is good for a walk, there is a skate board area, a small Amphitheater, a foutain with a shallow water layer. You can see the old Train Station.
There is also a Sacred Art Museum witch is a worth a visit.

Parque Ambiental Encontro dos Rios

Reviewed By GersonP - Teresina, PI

I think the place is naturally beautiful, but this is not enough to attract tourists when you consider the number of cons you will have to face. Teresina is very hot all year long, so one should consider visiting the place early in the morning. Slums and lower class people populate the area. There are a number of handcraft shops that can also be intersting. At your arrival, kids will approach to tell you folkloric stories for some money. In the park, you can see some Kiosks with handcrafts and snacks, very limited though. There is a floating restaurant over the river, not well ranked, but ok for a beer. Due to limited spots for visitation in Teresina, I think that 'Encontro dos Rios' becomes a must see.

Parque Zoobotanico de Teresina

Reviewed By Valmir S

Although the structure is quite ancient and the conditions of some places are a far cry from the perfection, the place is very beautiful and interesting. Some animals are very interesting to see and the track throughout the park is very good for Exercise. However, you may get bored in some points with lack of information and details about the animals. Everything is in Portuguese, so you better get your language skills sharped. All in all is a great activity that this city has to offer. You won't regret it.

Visitei o Museu de Arte Sacra e Popular, situado dentro da Casa da Cidadania, CenaJus, no Centro Histórico de Teresina, mas acredito que o acervo ou pelo menos parte dele, pertença ao Museu de Arte Sacra Dom Paulo Liborio.
Foi uma visita gratuita e interessante que eu recomendo.
