#2 of 10 in Things to do in Brumadinho
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
A large green area set aside for the protection of a diverse ecosystem, Rola Moca State Park harbors a unique community of plants and animals called the canga, composed of over 200 plant species divided up into 70 families. At this park you can see pineapple-like bromeliads, orchids, and succulents resembling flora usually exclusive to desert areas. You can also catch a glimpse of one of two deer species living here. Walk the trails alone or with a guided group, but don't forget to wear a sweater as the elevation here is high and temperatures have a tendency to drop quickly in the afternoon hours. Bring a blanket and stay late to see the setting sun disappear behind these verdant mountains. With our online itinerary creator, Brumadinho attractions like Rola Moca State Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Where to stay in Brumadinho

You won't find any accommodations particularly close to the open-air museum at Inhotim, despite its importance as the number one attraction in Brumadinho. Your best bet is to stay in one of the central neighborhoods of Sao Sebastiao or Estela Passos, where you'll easily be able to find transport to the museum. You can even make the 4 km (2.5 mi) journey by foot if you're feeling energetic. If you desire a closer proximity to nature, look for one of the handful of specialty accommodations within a 10 km (6.2 mi) radius of the city.
