  • Be up there, often in the middle of the clouds because it's almost always worth having passed the road which is not good. The place is divine ... a good energy ... a gift from God.

  • A beautiful place, quiet, easy to access, with a fantastic view, and great restaurants. Near Belo Horizonte, the sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Piedade, at Caeté is an excellent place to meditate, relax and enjoy the beautiful landscape. A great choice for those visiting the region of Belo Horizonte.

  • I was at the shrine on a Sunday when there was no special or commemorative programming, it is important to note that because even without being "special day" was too full, so I don't think this is a good idea to visit the shrine with the intention to meet him in the "special", as holy week, etc. I believe these days are better for the masses. At the foot of the mountain there is a gate where visitors receive a card for payment of vehicle entry, despite being a bubbling hot, don't nominate do it on foot, especially with children and elderly people as it is rather tiresome. In the "middle" of the mountain there is an area with snack bar, parking and restrooms, these last were not in such good shape. From there to the Church the route must be done on foot or bus provided by the Shrine, I saw some cars going up too, but I think there is some special reason. View from the top is amazing! You can see Caeté, Belo Horizonte and Sabará, a 360 and inspiring vision. The Sanctuary has excellent structure also, there is a simple and tasty food and a souvenir gift shop and Bookstore. There is also the oldest church in 18TH century, the new Church, the Calvary, the tomb and the Centre, the latter have not had the pleasure of meeting because it was closed. Anyway, it's a walk light and very tasty, indico take warm clothes at any time of the year mainly because of the strong winds and use sunscreen.
