Peu Ribeiro used a DJI Inspire 2 drone to create this stunning video of the Old Town of Salvador, Brazil.  Salvador is the largest city in the state of Bahia and it's the fourth largest city in the country as well as the largest in the officially recognized Northeast Region.  The historic city was "discovered" by the Spaniards in 1500 but settled by the Portuguese beginning in the mid-16th century.  It is one of the oldest European settlements in the Western Hemisphere.

Recife: The Venice of Brazil


Here is an aerial look at the city of Recife, one of the largest cities in Brazil.  It's the capital of the state of Pernambuco, a small (area-wise) but densely populated state in the country's Northeastern region.  Recife is very near the easternmost extreme point of the country, and it has historically served (among other things) as the primary port for the country's massive sugar export trade.  As you'll see from the video, it's a colorful and cosmopolitan looking city.

Natal, Brazil has the distinction of being the closest major city to Africa and Europe.  It's the capital of the state of Rio Grande del Norte, one of the nine states which make up the country's official Northeast Region. It's one of the 20 largest cities in the country and one of the top 3-4 in the Northeast Region.   Contributor Video Fly gives us a drone's eye view of the country, which is near the spot where Brazil was first "discovered" by Portuguese explorers around the turn of the 15th century.

The Port of Fortaleza, Brazil


Fortaleza is one of the oldest settlements in Brazil; it was actually "discovered" by the Spaniards but was not recognized as a Spanish discovery under the 1494 treaty that effectively divided the non-European world between Spain and Portugal.  Today it is one of the most important cities in Northeastern Brazil.  Its modest-sized port is Brazil's primary sugar export port and is increasingly being used as a cruise ship port of call, as you'll see in this drone video by DCIMagens.

While Brazil's long Atlantic coastline does not have many large island of note, portions of it are dotted with tropical mangroves and lagoons.  These semi-protected waters are perfect for aquatic activities like kiteboarding.  Witness this beautiful drone video by Nuculeus.  It was shot in one of these lagoon area in the state of Piauí.  Located in northern Brazil, Piauí is a large state with a very short coastline.  It's one of the nine states which make up Brazil's official Northeast Region.
