"Piracicaba", in Tupi language, means "place where the fish stops" due to the waterfalls of the Piracicaba River.
In front of these waterfalls, there is a Municipal Park called "Parque da Rua do Porto" (Port Street Park complex) the main tourism site in Piracicaba. There, you may find open air restaurants, bars and handicraft stores and you may also visit the Old Piracicaba Sugar mill and the Municipal Water Museum.
The ESALQ/USP beautiful campus is itself a tourism site.
