The beautiful city of Poços de Caldas
With one of the highest Human Development Indexes (HDI) in the country, Poços de Caldas is considered excellent for living. In addition, in the ranking "The Best Cities in Brazil", published by IstoÉ magazine, one of the main week Brazilian magazines, the city was elected the best medium-sized municipality in Minas Gerais and the second best in this category of the country. It is in this city that is located one of Components Technology Plants of thyssenkrupp.
The city combines two worlds: indoor climate, but with the benefits of a big city. Poços de Caldas is well planned, beautiful and sustainable and is ideal for those seeking tranquility, comfort and natural landscape. In addition, it has good schools and colleges (PUC Minas, Pitágoras, UNIFAL and other 16 options).
Entertainment & fun
For those who want a busy social life, the city does not leave anything to be desired. Poços offers several nice bars and diverse culinary restaurants; music festivals during the year and one of the most lively Carnival of the Region move their quiet streets. The St. Benedict Feast, which takes place in May, is the most traditional of the city. The event is one of the main cultural events in Poços de Caldas, with a program that includes presentations by folklore groups, religious events, as well as the famous parish huts that sell typical dishes, sweets and hot drinks. Here you will find numerous opportunities to spend a nice evening with your friends or family.

The indicator classifies 304 municipalities with more than 100 thousand inhabitants taking into account the living conditions of the young population in different segments, such as exposure to violence, permanence in school and education, form of insertion in the labor market and socioeconomic context. Poços de Caldas is the only city in the state of Minas Gerais among the 10 best placed.
