Maceió

Maceió

Maceió (Portuguese pronunciation: [masejˈjɔ]) is the capital and the largest city of the coastal state of Alagoas, Brazil. The name "Maceió" is of Indigenous origin, and designates the naturally spontaneous courses of water which flow out of the soil. Most maceiós flow to the sea, but some get trapped and form lakes ("lagoas", in Portuguese).
