  • It is a stone used to house slaves fleeing from farms to the cities of Vale do Paraíba. There is a legend that says that on nights with a full moon who walks through the cave of Creoles can sculpt the sound of chains being dragged across the floor and also the sounds of moans from the spirits of slaves who roam the place.

  • Abandoned, double-talk arrive and dont see cars around. Speaks little of the history and the legends of the only sign that indicates the place. At least they're not charging for it, so how are you doing with the stone.

  • Very interesting to discover this attraction. This cave discovery for many years and used by slaves to hide allows an interesting contact with nature. This immense stone that allows the formation of cave guarantees beautiful images.

  • Nice place, but the people have a habit of littering. It's a cool Grotto. Bad dirt road

  • Beautiful site and interesting story. I went on weekday and, for no one and be removed and isolated, I think it's dangerous. Only want to have to go to class or in high season.

  • Hard-to-reach location, without any structure, much less signs ... I don't know how that "bar" works there.

  • I tried to go to the cave, but only went halfway on the road because I was scared of my car bogged down and not come back, because my car 4 x 4 ... some cyclists who were circuit there said the road was good and I could go on, but we were afraid because there was too much rain last night! A shame because I would have known this place has history. :)

  • It's just a grotto, a huge stone, but who likes adventure can climb the rocks and go through inside of them is not very suitable for children, since it requires a level of caution and careful not to hurt yourself because time and slippery. Good ride. Has a good diner great snacks.

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.
