The world's biggest rainforest and second longest river (Amazon), the highest mountain range outside [[Asia]] (the Andes), remote islands ([[Galapagos Islands]], [[Easter Island]] and [[Fernando de Noronha]]), heavenly beaches (such as in Brazil's [[Northeast (Brazil)|Northeastern]] region), wide deserts (Atacama), icy landscapes ([[Patagonia]] & [[Tierra del Fuego]]), the world's tallest waterfall (the 979m [[Angel Falls]], in Venezuela) and one of the largest ([[Iguaçu Falls]], Argentina and Brazil), as well as several other breathtaking natural attractions.
Besides, the work of man has also left rare gems on the continent: ruins of ancient civilizations ([[Machu Picchu]] and other Inca cities; the ''Moais'' in Easter Island) share the continent with world-class metropolises ([[São Paulo]], [[Buenos Aires]], [[Bogotá]], [[Santiago de Chile]], [[Caracas]], [[Lima]] and [[Rio de Janeiro]]), outstanding modern architecture ([[Brasilia]]), European architecture ([[Buenos Aires]]), the oldest rock paintings in the Americas (at the [[Serra da Capivara]]), strong [[Africa]]n heritage (in [[Salvador]], Rio and Montevideo), genuine indigenous ([[Belém]], [[Manaus]], [[Cuzco]], [[Lima]], [[La Paz]]), charming cities built in the Andes ([[Caracas]], [[Medellín]], [[Quito]], [[Santiago de Chile]]) and [[East Asia|Eastern]] culture (São Paulo's enormous [[Japan]]ese community), mingled with the fingerprints of [[Iberia]]n colonizers. [[Ushuaia]], the world's southernmost city and some of its biggest festivities, such as Rio's Carnival and Belem's ''Cirio de Nazaré'', the Tango World Championship, and the Vendimia festival in Argentina, are also part of this incredibly diverse and attractive continent.
