The two major São Paulo train stations (Train station) are Luz and Julio Prestes in the Luz Campos Eliseos region. Luz is the seat of the Santos (Santos, São Paulo)-Jundiaí line which historically transported international immigrants (Immigration to Brazil) from the Santos port to São Paulo and the coffee plantation lands in the Western region of Campinas. Julio Prestes connected the SW São Paulo State and Northern Paraná (Paraná (state)) State to São Paulo and products were transferred to Luz Station from which they headed to the Atlantic ocean (Atlantic Ocean) and overseas. Julio Prestes ceased from transporting passengers through the Sorocabana or FEPASA lines and now only has limited suburban service.

and nightlife typical of a large city, but with ease of access to the beautiful landscape and the scenic towns of the Mantiqueira mountain range. Campinas also hosts a considerable historical heritage from the late XIX century, associated with the properity of coffee farming during this period. Districts thumb 250px Downtown Campinas. (File:Largo do Rosário - Campinas - SP.JPG) * The '''main district''' of Campinas contains two high-rise areas: '''Downtown''', the oldest part of the city and main shopping area and transport hub, and just next to it, '''Cambuí''', an affluent neighborhood with several restaurants, bars and hotels. The rest of the main district is mostly composed of low-rise suburbs of different social profiles, with points of interest relatively spread. * '''Sousas''' and '''Joaquim Egídio''', adjacent to each other, offer lots of nature and a charming historic center. Several gated communities have also poped up in this area. * '''Barão Geraldo''' is the district that contains UNICAMP, plus several companies and research centers. It is basically a collection of calm suburbs, but with good infrastructure of commerce and services, and a substantial number of restaurants and bars. * '''Nova Aparecida''' is a more industrial suburban district and should not be of interest to a visitor. Understand Campinas means "grass fields" in Portuguese and refers to its characteristic landscape, which originally comprised large stretches of dense subtropical forests (''mato grosso'' or "thick woods" in Portuguese), mainly along the many rivers, interspersed with gently rolling hills covered by low-lying vegetation. History thumb 250px The ''Casa Grande and Tulha'', in Jardim Proença, are the remnants of Campinas' first coffee farm. (File:Casa Grande e Tulha.JPG) The city was founded on July 14, 1774, by Barreto Leme, initially as a simple outpost on the way to Minas Gerais and Goiás serving the "Bandeirantes" who were in search of precious minerals and Indian slaves. In the first half of the 19th century, Campinas became a growing population center, with many coffee, cotton and sugarcane farms. The construction of a railway linking the city to São Paulo and Santos' seaport, in 1867, was very important for its growth. In the second half of the 19th century, with the abolition of slavery, farming and industrialization attracted many foreign immigrants to replace the lost manpower, mainly from Italy. Coffee became an important export and the city became wealthy. In consequence, a large service sector was established to serve the growing population, and in the first decades of the 20th century, Campinas could already boast of an opera house, theaters, banks, movie theaters, radio stations, a philharmonic orchestra, two newspapers, a good public education system, hospitals, and the most important Brazilian research center in agricultural sciences. Finally, the construction of the first Brazilian highway in 1938, between Campinas and São Paulo, the Anhanguera Highway, was a turning point in the integration of Campinas into the rest of the state. Campinas was the birthplace of opera composer Carlos Gomes (1836—1896) and of the President of the Republic Campos Salles (1841—1913), both of whom have small museums here in their honor today.
