Angra dos Reis

Angra dos Reis

      city and port, southwestern Rio de Janeiro estado (state), eastern Brazil. It lies on Ilha Grande Bay, an inlet of the Atlantic. The city's income derives from its port operations, a sizable fishing industry, and the flow of weekend and holiday tourists drawn to nearby beaches and resorts. A railway running from Barra Mansa transports sugar, coffee, feijão (beans), steel, and coal to Angra dos Reis for export. Since the development of the city of Volta Redonda, 35 miles (56 km) inland, with its huge steel-mill complex, the shipbuilding and port facilities of Angra dos Reis have gained added importance. A nuclear power plant has also been built near Angra dos Reis. The city is on the Rio de Janeiro–Santos highway and has an airport. Surviving colonial buildings include the 17th-century Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pop. (2005 est.) 134,500.
