Volta Redonda

Central America is the central geographic region of the Americas. It is variably defined either as being a region of the Americas in its own right or as the southern portion of North America. Physiographically, Central America is a tropical isthmus that connects North and South America. It includes 7 countries and many small offshore islands. Overall, the land is fertile and rugged, and dominated through its heart by a string of volcanic mountain ranges with a few active volcanos.

Volta Redonda is the name of a city in the Rio de Janeiro state with 182,81 square kilometers of area, located from 350 meters to 707 meters from the sea level and with a population of 258.145 inhabitants was estimated in 2006. The area around the city has nearly 700,000. Its name, Portuguese for round turn, is due to the shape of a curve in the Paraíba do Sul River around which the city was built. Volta Redonda Futebol Clube is the most important football club of the city, playing its home matches at Estadio Raulino de Oliveira, which is also located in the city.
