Physical map of Brazil
Information about the geography of BrazilBrazil is continental South America's largest country having borders with every other South American nation except Chile and Ecuador.
As Brazil is based on relatively stable continental crust, much of the country is below 500 metres and there is little or no volcanic or seismic activity. There are three key elements to the physical geography of Brazil: the low lying Amazon basin and Pantanal wetlands in the North and North West of the country; a rolling central plateau where the capital Brasilia is found and rugged hills and mountains in the south and along the Atlantic coast - the Brazilian Highlands near Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo where the highest point in Brazil can be found, the Pico de Neblina at 3,000 metres.
