Maceio is the largest city and the capital of the coastal state of Alagoas, Brazil. In 2013 the city population of Maceio was 996,730 people on a total area of 511 km2 (197 ml2).
The name of the city is of Indigenous origin, designating the naturally spontaneous water courses which flow out of the soil. Most maceios flow to the sea, but some of them get trapped and form "lagoas" (lakes). There are plenty of lakes and maceios in this part of Brazil - the reason why the city was named Maceio, and the State, Alagoas. Maceio is connected with many Brazilian cities via the new Zumbi dos Palmares International Airport which also operates international flights.
Maceio is home to the famous Federal University of Alagoas, as well as to numerous beautiful beaches. The colour of sea here varies from emerald green to blue, the sand is white and the water is crystal clear. There are also many coconut plantations. The Maceio sea features natural pools and reefs located a few meters off the coast, and accessed only by boat or raft sailing. The Mundau lake is another option for bathing and sailing in transparent water.
Maceio's historical buildings include the Historical Institute Museum, Cathedral of Our Lady of Pleasures, Deodoro Theatre, Municipal Market, and Floriano Peixoto Palace, which is the seat of Alagoas State government.
Port of Jaragua is a Brazilian port in Maceio. The economic and commercial development of Port of Jaragua, next to the margins of Mundau lagoon, was responsible for the appearance of important settlement which received the name of Maceio and became the present Alagoas' capital. The Port of Jaragua lies in a natural port area facilitating the ships docking. During the colonial period in Brazil, the major products exported from the port included coconut, spices, sugar and tobacco.
