Garanhuns is a city from the State of Pernambuco, in Brazil.
With a population of 130,000 inhabitants, Garanhuns is the biggest winter resort of the Northwest of Brazil. Like Rome or Lisbon, the city spreads itself over the top of 7 hills, being at 850m and 1000m over the sea level and surrounded by a remarkable number of river sources. The region where it's nestled is, therefore, one of the coldest and most humid ones of the Northwest, worldly known as a hot and dry zone. In fact, during the winter, especially on July, the temperature is normally under 10ºC, situation that is explored by the city during a whole week, when the nationally famous Winter Festival takes place. Birthplace of Brazil's former President Lula, Garanhuns is also known as the "Little Switzerland of Pernambuco" and the "City of the Flowers".
