Everybody asks about this city origin when hearing the name, if it is Greek or a North-American city homonym. But the name was a tribute to its founder, Mr. Filadelfio Antonio de Noronha. In Filadélfia during the summer the winds deposit very long sand columns at the river´s border, forming outstanding beaches. It is a nice place for fishing and ride boats. The Vitoria Stream and the Cunha River are goods options to visit.
Landmarks: In the area are the famous waterfalls of Pedra Caída and the balneários de Itapecuru das Cunhãs, all in Carolina in the state of Maranhão.
