  • A must for those who pass by Gramado and Canela, fair price, well managed Park. Pity only that time I visited, the staircase was in maintenance. Tip: you don't need to visit the Observatory of the elevator that is paid, low vision is as pretty as.

  • It is a pity that the staircase that leads to the base of the waterfall of the snail is broken (no forecast of reopening, unfortunately) and that the restaurant is closed. The Park is a good place to relax, observe flora and fauna typical of the serra gaucha and visit a handicraft market, colonial products and souvenir shop located a few metres from the Belvedere.
