Giant and oddly-placed boulders are called Lajedo de Pai Mateus. They are twice as tall as average person, and if you hit them with a rock, they make a bell-like sound. Best time to visit Lajedo de Pai Mateus is at dusk, to watch the sunset’s orange glow. But at any time of the day, you can see the cave paintings attributed to Cariris Indians, who lived in the region for some 12,000 years. As for the boulder’s name, legend has it that a hermit healer named Father Mattew lived in the region in the 18th century, and many people sought him to seek help with treating illnesses. He did not charge money for the cures, just asked for food, so his honor, the site got its name.

The Rock is located on private property and provides structure to receive tourists with guided tours at the cost of 35 reais. Worth knowing the lush landscape in rustic environment, with gigantic stones scattered around the mountain. Very nice watch the sunset down. I loved.

Iu GomesJuly 30, 2017In the future will be geopark. Rock formations full of peculiarities. Go in sunny day for pictures. Cool
Edgard FialhoJune 22, 2017Amazing place! I found the way in faro when I went, had gone to the village of Cabaceiras and picked up a dirt road, missing signage. Maybe so that only those who really wish to reach, reach. Next has a hotel with cottages, a very good restaurant, and the tours valleys all worthwhile.
André SampaioJune 5, 2017I've been a few times in the Rock of father Matthew, and the place doesn't get tired. It's a nice place to visit, appreciate is to enjoy, to be alone with your couple or in family. Each day is special. Today we have to pay a fee of 20 reais per person to visit with Guide (can't visit alone), but they give you freedom to take pictures, walk a bit and rest. Recommend, and come back again.
Rutty CoróJuly 16, 2017Interesting to see the sunrise and the sunset, the Moon comes up. A place to meditate, enjoy, ponder ...
Sandro CorreiaJune 23, 2017Amazing place to visit at sunset, choosing a full moon night is even better.
