Properties in Alagoas BelgiumWater abounds in Alagoas—rivers, swamps, lakes, and lagoons, after which the state was named. And, of course, there’s the ocean. Tourists flock to the state’s beautiful, palm-fringed beaches.

The state capital is Maceió. The city’s name comes from an Amerindian word for water that comes out of the ground, and there are several such pools of water in the area. The city is also known for its crafts, especially its fine laces, and its whimsical streak. Many of its public telephone booths are designed in various fruit and animal shapes.
