  • We had many desires of descending on this saw. It gave them circumstances and could do it although had much fog. The breathtaking scenery to make it quiet and enjoying it is our way of traveling. highly recommended.

  • Unkempt and dirty place, but the view is great! Allows you to view the winding road that climbs the mountain. Account with a trade that could be better organized.

  • The track is simple, is in the works, has many curves. Still, be sure to go to the lookout. The view is amazing, pictures do not reproduce the beauty of the place. Search go between the 14 10 hours, timetables with improved visibility. There are cameras online where you can view the web in real time how is visibility in the gazebo. When I was in was quite foggy, Urubici but there was clear. In the region due to the topography, vegetation and winds, there are different weather conditions. So don't be discouraged if your pousada it's raining, in attractions time can be good. Recommend going with time for the gazebo and lunch in the Observatory's own restaurant or restaurants/steak houses of Bom Jardim da Serra. On the Lookout for colonial trade, crafts etc.
