    The idea seems to create a replica of a place in the Backcountry, so I found it quite interesting ... has a home, a device, a sale, etc. with curios and trasmitem us a real idea of what life was like in the backcountry. There's a dance floor and forró, plus a restaurant. The ticket costs 10 reais.

    Important historical to rescue our culture. The caveat I do is the lack of more information on the items of the site, even with some informative boards on the sites, it would be great if I had someone to explain the environments represented.
