Map of Brazil

Claiming almost half of the continent, Brazil shares a common border with every South American country except Ecuador and Chile.

The Amazon basin is located in the north of Brazil, with large areas of swamps and flood lands.

The highest point in Brazil is the Pico da Neblina (3,014 m.), near the border with Venezuela.

In 1500, Portuguese Admiral Pedro Alvares Cabral, was the first European to reach Brazil and start the colonisation of South America's largest country; although the Spanish navigator Vicente Yanez Pinzon had beaten him to the area a few months earlier.

Portugal's new territory was originally named Terra da Vera Cruz - Land of the True Cross, until Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci explored the coastline in 1501.

Vespucci called one of the bays Rio de Janeiro, and returned to Portugal with a valuable cargo of brazil wood. From then on, Terra da Vera Cruz became known as Brazil.
