Diversified immigration, honey and waterfalls
The town’s distinguishing feature is the diversity of immigrants it received: Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Syrian and Latvian. In fact, one of the tours there is called Latvian Routes and involves visits to typical houses, restaurants and handicraft shops.
In the town center it is possible to visit the square that celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Japanese immigration.
Native Indians, who were the first people to live there, are represented in the ethnographic collection of Índia Vanuíre Historic and Pedagogic Museum.
Tupã has beautiful waterfalls, such as the one located at Recanto das Águas. Travelers can also visit apiaries and orchid gardens in the farms around the town.
