  • After climbing by road full of bends with beautiful landscapes, the top of the observation tower is spectacular, on sunny days and long clean (no clouds) one can see the sea. With wild animals (coatis) to eat in your hand.

  • Before descending the Serra do Rio do Rastro, must stop in the mirante, which unspools the view from above. In days of clear weather, one can see the landscape at large distances, with a privileged view of the curves of the Serra do Rio do Rastro. The sight is indescribable!
