Piauí (Portuguese pronunciation: [pjaˈwi] or [pi.awˈi]) is ane o the states o Brazil, locatit in the northeastren pairt o the kintra.

Piauí haes the shortest coastline o ony o the nan-landlockit Brazilian states at 66 km (41 mi), an the caipital, Teresina, is the anerlie state caipital in the north east tae be locatit inland. The raison for this is, unlik the rest o the aurie, Piauí wis first colonised inland an slowly expanded towards the ocean, rather than the ither wey aroond. In the sootheast o the state, the Naitional Pairk o Serra da Capivara is a UNESCO Warld Heritage Steid. The pairk haes mair nor 400 airchaeological steids an the lairgest concentration o rock paintins in the warld, in a landscape dominatit bi canyons an caatinga.
