National Park Nature / Park
From bathing in hot springs to trekking along hilly trails, Serra de Caldas state park is a must-see outdoor mecca. Rock walls along the park's sides and a hill at the base of the mountain clearly divide this rural escape from the nearby urban areas and is easily accessible from the city. Established in 1970 to protect the basin area that is used for collecting of rainwater and that fuels the thermal springs, the park was this lovingly restored and is now a natural habitat. The oval-shaped park covers an area of around 123 sq km (1.324 sq ft) and a vast plateau at its peak.
