Porto Alegre is the capital of Rio Grande do Sul, which is located in the country's south. The city was founded approximately 250 years ago by immigrants from the Portuguese Azores and is located on the eastern bank of the Guaíba River. Apart from its tropical subclimate, the city of Porto Alegre is also known for being the political and economic center of Southern Brazil. Furthermore Porto Alegre's rich culture, Gaúchos, has been influenced by its neighboring countries Argentina and Uruguay.
