  • I visited the Canyon Fortaleza and indeed is a beautiful place and worth the visit. Unfortunately the site has no structure to receive visitors. Is a public reserve and as is to be expected is abandoned. There is a local organization that raises funds in the driveway and don't know exactly what they do, but I imagine they are they who have kept the place clean (and offer the only restroom within a radius of 10 km). Really a shame. However, I might point out that it is worth the visit.

  • I visited the cânyon Indians crowned, with the good weather, one can see the beach from the town of Torres-RS. The view is sensational. Gets in the way of Itaimbezinho Canyon.

  • Excellent leisure option for singles, married couples and families. The Park is only accessible by dirt road with few conditions, so high (crossover) cars, SUVs, jeeps and vans are recommended, but not essential. What you can't miss are bottles of water and snacks, because there is nothing to sell in the Park. Spend at least 3 hours, until the whole day for the ride.
