The Rio Grande do Sul region wanted to be independent from Brazil in the 19th century. The gauchos fueled the Farroupilha Revolution of 1835 that went on for a decade. The area became part of Brazil once more and a peace treaty resolved the issue. Nevertheless, another revolution broke out from 1893 to 1895 (Federalist Revolution) and then in 1930 (overthrow of Washington Luis), and once more in 1935 (Communist upheaval).
All this history has instilled in the region’s gauchos the perspective that they are more gouchos than Brazilians.
Visit Porto Alegre with the help of Skiddoo and meet the proud gouchos.
