Xingó Canyon

Piranhas is one of the base cities for those visiting the Xingó Canyon, on the border between Alagoas and Sergipe. 

The much sought-after attraction on the São Francisco River emerged after the construction of the Xingó Hydroelectric Power Plant, in 1994. Before that, the landscape was that of a crack between two walls.

Tourists can also enter the narrowest part of the canyon, known as “hewn paradise”, but, for this, it is necessary to hire one of the boatmen who are on site. The narrow stretch cannot be navigated by catamarans. 

Cangaço Route

The Cangaço Route leads to the place where Lamp, Maria Bonita and nine other bandits were killed during an ambush.
