Santa Cruz do Sul is a small city in Brazil that has an interesting history. The city doesn't have the same kind of Portuguese historical influence that the majority of other Brazilian cities have. In fact, there is a strong German culture historically here and every year there are festivals to commemorate this, you can even find German speakers in the countryside areas, you can head straight out of the city if you hire a car in Santa Cruz do Sul. Although it's a small city, this will also allow you to navigate the attractions in the centre and around the area.
One of the biggest and most beautiful churches in the city is called Cathedral São João Batista, this is a must see for anyone wanting their fill of beautiful architecture in the area. If you would like a relaxing afternoon outside then the Parque Municipal da Gruta dos Indios is great to visit. You can relax and see some great nature, or sit by the lake that has a small amount of marine life. If you want to hear some great local Brazilian music then it's worth going for a stroll along Imigrante Avenue where you will find many great buskers. We advise hiring a car in Santa Cruz do Sul to make the most of a trip here.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
