Located in the Northeastern portion of the state of São Paulo, 313 km away from the capital, Ribeirão Preto is the heart of one of the most wealthiest regions in Brazil, which has been massively stimulated by its powerful agriculture industry since 1856, when the city was founded. Ribeirão's vocation for agribusiness first started with the cultivation of coffee, whose lucrative exportations in the late 19th century brought much money and investments to the city. Nowadays, the economy of the city is mainly based on its efficient commerce and services activities, but its agricultural importance still remains very large to the country, producing lots of sugar cane and, in smaller proportions, orange and coffee. Besides that, Ribeirão Preto has the biggest agricultural technology trade show in Latin America, significant universities and medical centers, a good life standard and what is called the best draft beer in Brazil.
