Gardens · Lookouts · Architectural Buildings
Brazilian Switzerland
Pointed roofs, wooden alpine houses, and mountain views typify Campos do Jordao, which at 1,628 m (5,341 ft) above sea level comes in as Brazil's highest city. Dubbed the "Brazilian Switzerland" in reference to its architecture, climate, and surrounding landscape, the small city is home to around 50,000 residents. Sightseeing in Campos do Jordao offers the chance to appreciate charming European-style architecture, plus outdoor activites such as horseback riding, hiking, mountain climbing, and cable swings that soar above the treetops. Don't forget to pack a jacket--the mercury can dip well below freezing during winter.

Where to stay in Campos Do Jordao

In keeping with the city's architectural style, most places to stay in Campos do Jordao are cozy wooden guesthouses or inns, rather than large hotel complexes. Concentrated in the neighborhood of Capivari, a couple miles northeast of the city center, Campos do Jordao's accommodations offer a relaxed, country-style atmosphere. Given the demographic of tourists who typically visit the city, you'll struggle to find budget lodging options, such as youth hostels. Reserve your room in advance, especially if visiting during the winter high season (May through August), to avoid disappointment.
