Campo Grande is the capital and largest city of Mato Grosso do Sul in the Center-West region of Brazil. Cidade Morena is the other name of the city which means ‘Swarthy City’ in Portuguese. This name was given due to the reddish-brown color of the soil in that region. This region is like a central point for anyone who wants to go from Sao Paulo or Minas Gerais to northern Mato Grosso by land.
