About the City of Boa Vista
Satellite view showing Boa Vista (Great View) capital of Roraima, one of the 26 Brazilian states. The city is located on the west bank of the Rio Branco (White River), a tributary of the Rio Negro (Black River) in the North Region of Brazil. It is the northernmost capital in Brazil despite its position of just 300 km north of the equator.
Boa Vista was founded in 1830. In 1890 the settlement received town status, it was then known as Boa Vista do Rio Branco. In 1943 it became the capital of the newly created Federal Territory of Rio Branco. When you look at the map you can see that it is a planned city with a radial layout, resembling a fan (planned in 1944-46).
