Welcome to Penedo
Originally started as a Finnish colony in the early 20th century, Penedo has grown into a vacation resort that embraces all things non-Brazilian. In the more developed lower section of town, you’ll find tourist traps capitalizing on the region’s European heritage mixed in with authentic Old World influences such as the Clube Finlândia, which still hosts traditional Finnish dances the first Saturday of every month. In Alto do Penedo, the upper part of town, it’s easier to appreciate the luxuriant natural beauty that lies just outside the city limits. Wherever you go, you’ll be sure to appreciate the emphasis on the traditional Finnish sauna, found at most hotels.
