Castelinho Caracol, built by German immigrants Pedro Carlos Franzen and Luiza Sommer between the years of 1913 and 1915, was one of the first residences in the Town of Canela. The charming "little castle" was made with such craftsmenship, that it still stands 100 years later, despite being made of wood. Today the castle is a museum, with authentic furnishings and utensils, where you can experience the life of an early 20th century German immigrant. Enjoy the 180 degree vista of the green countryside from the castle's small tower, and explore the surrounding park, including the native wood, the house used by the family before the little castle had been finished, the saw mill where Pedro Franzen used to work, the storage sheds, and a warehouse. Make sure you try "the best Apfelstrudel in Brazil." Use our Canela trip builder to add Castelinho Caracol and other attractions to your Canela vacation plans.

  • Do you see yourself in time, imagining what life was like the people in that House at that time, with those objects, something fantastic, in Brazil had never passed in a similar location, I've met several towns and historic monuments, but never like this, with personal objects of the time inside the House, now the only problem is the dessert they sell there, my wife paid R$ 25.00 a Strudel , I did not ask or else spend 50.00 R$ just on dessert, is overkill, an abuse, she liked but agreed that not worth it, but other than that, the ride, the story, the House are magnificent things that make you travel into the past.

  • particularly found very commercial, who just want to go to the restaurant to eat and drink something you can't unless you pay a rate of visitation.

  • A lovely ride for one of the first residences, built in 1913. You will find relics of the family in environments very well kept. It is still possible to taste a traditional apple strudel.
