Abadiânia is a city in the state of Goiás, Brazil. It is home to a famous Brazilian medium and "psychic surgeon" — João de Deus.


Abadiânia is part of the Entorno do Distrito Federal statistical micro-region. Neighboring municipalities are:

  • North: Pirenópolis, Corumbá de Goiás, and Alexânia
  • South: Silvânia
  • East: Anápolis
  • West: Alexânia


Despite being a municipality since 1953 Abadiânia was only installed in its present site in the 1960s. The population was not happy with conditions of access and little by little they began to build their houses along the highway 18 kilometers away, where the present-day town is located.
