Cidades e Lendas is the thirteenth solo album by Brazilian musician Zé Ramalho. It was released in 1996, after another four-year gap with no albums. It was released in a show at TUCA, São Paulo, around the time when his hit "Admirável Gado Novo" was featured at the soundtrack of Rede Globo's telenovela O Rei do Gado. When comparing this work with his previous effort, Frevoador, Ramalho said he was more satisfied this time because he had more time "to choose the best repertoire and invite the right people".[2]

By the end of October 1998, it had sold 50,000 copies.[3]
