Petrolina is a small city in Brazil. It is filled with greenery and offers a break from the hustle bustle of the busy life. There are several attractions. I went there to spend some quiet time and I must say that the city didn’t disappoint. If you are going to visit the city any time soon, take a look at the top attractions it has to offer.



  • Rio Sao Francisco

I was keen on visiting the place because of the Water Sports such as canoeing, Jet Ski, etc. You will also be able to take a ferry to cross the river or go up to the lake. If you want to spend some relaxing time, there are many places where providing food and drinks along the riverside.

  • Sacred Heart Church of Jesus

If you want to check out some cathedral, this is the best option. Sacred Heart Church of Jesus displays architectural magnificence. It is going to make you fall in love with it. You can spend some quiet time and get peace of mind. This cathedral is worth a visit.

  • Rodeador Island

Want to spend some along blue water bathing? Take out your swimsuit and go for bathing along Rodeador Island’s crystal clear water. Here, you can enjoy the warm sunshine and the food that is served in the local restaurant is pretty delicious. To cross the river by boat, I had to hire on.

  • Bododromo

Apart from roasted goat, this place is also known to serve amazing fish with capers. You should not miss out on this. Here, you will find local groups performing live.

  • Petrolina Waterfront

This is a beautiful part of this city. However, there is something which is missing at the border. However, this place is completely empty. Hence, you need to carry your own food if you visit this place. This is great for a peaceful late afternoon.
