Povoamento Novo Airão - Where the dolphin is not a legend
What began as a settlement of the Jesuits founded at the mouth of the river Jau, in 1668, and named St. Elias Jau. The region was inhabited by Uaimiri, Atroaí, Crichanã and Carabinari Jauaperi. Everything indicates that the mission and village of St. Elias the Jau was the second or third core settlement organized by the Portuguese in Amazonian lands. In 1759, the village became a city under the name Airão, by Joaquim de Melo Póvoas, first Governor of the Province of Sao Jose do Rio Negro. Later the district became part Airão Manaus and when it was changed in 1938, became New Airão.
Within the city lies the Anavilhanas Ecological Station, one of the largest in the world with approximately 400 islands, hundreds of lakes, rivers and streams, all rich in various species of plants and animals. The place is a paradise for biologists and ecologists, but is now incorporated into the National Park Anavilhanas. The city stands out for its high concentration of red dolphins, porpoises, tucuxis (gray) and manatees. To see them, just go to Jau National Park, the largest park in Brazil and second in South America.
Attractions: Celebrations Sant'Angelo - Patron of the City (April 27 to May 25), Folk Festival (June), Airãoense Popular Music Festival (29-30 August), Manatee Festival (last weekend of October), Summer Festival (Nov. 17).
New Airão shows the ruins of its former headquarters, Airão and a religious construction in stone dedicated to St. Elias the Jau. The Centers Tourist Service (CAT) and the River Terminal rental (TFT) act as information centers and services to visitors, with bilingual attendants that provide information about domestic and international flights, ground transportation companies, travel agencies, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and tourist spots and general information about the city.
