    The road of the cold in the Brejo of Paraíba


    The climate of the Brejo region is marked by a curious temperature inversion: going towards west, the temperature fall sharply before rising again (the route is called route of the cold).

    The Brejo of Paraíba includes mountain landscapes with an average altitude of 550 m and temperatures between 12 and 18 degrees from June to August. 

    A cold scenario for the North-East, made up of rivers and waterfalls, trails and tropical forest, not to mention the hundred-year-old heritage of the cities and the promotion of events.

    Because of the altitude, the train that was the engine of development in the region in the past never went there, and the city of Areia, classified by IPHAN, stay stuck in the past.
