  • The ride through the Sierra is exciting, as the cliffs are very close and your altitude is great. The scenery is beautiful!

  • The beauty of nature and the beauty of the road, give this place a visual surprise. The feeling is of being literally in the clouds.

  • I went up the Serra do Rio do Rastro coming from Lauro Muller, the road paved and well marked, it's amazing, every bend a beautiful view, each stop which has several on the way up, many pictures, exuberant nature, very careful with the bikers and even bicyclists , leaving aside those crazy truckers, running up and down the hills (which should be banned trucks there), but everything is summed up in a great adventure, try a day with Sun and fog-free, because it's worth the look on the road. Upstairs has the viewpoint, to take some more pictures and make a stop in the little shops and cafes. Worth knowing, I recommend to all.
