The most prominent geographical features of Brazil are the Brazilian Highlands or Brazilian Plateau and the basin of the Amazon River
The Principle Mountain Ranges are the Serra da Mariqueira, the Serra do Mar and the Serra Geral. These mountains are in the southeast half of Brazil and part of the Brazilian Plateau
"Serra" means Mountains!
The basin of the Amazon River takes up almost 1/3 of Brazil! The basin is made up of lowlands, swamps, floodplains and rain forests!
