The largest city of Santa Catarina, with more than 500 thousand inhabitants, has distinct and impressive characteristics. As a modern urban center and also an industrial center, it still preserves the traces of European colonization very well. During the month of July, the city becomes the world capital of dance, when it hosts the Joinville Dance Festival, the largest of its kind in the world.

The city receives thousands of dancers and dance lovers, as well as protagonists or spectators of the festival, who move the companies, shopping malls and the stages of Centreventos Cau Hansen, where the festival maintains its headquarters. Those who visit the city have at their disposal activities ranging from rural to industrial tourism, as well as a very diverse cultural and commercial heritage, associated with mouth-watering gastronomy, such as homemade sweets and chocolates, colonial cafes and traditional Stuffed mallards.

Joinvile has as one of the highlights in its attractions, the National Museum of Immigration and Colonization, whose building was listed by the National Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute (IPHAN), preserving more than 5 pieces related to the colonization of Joinvile, including Casa Enxaimel built in 1905, reproducing a typical XNUMXth century German construction.
