  • Cool is the story of this bridge. The bridge of the arches was built between 1877 and 1883, the extinct railroad Santa Isabel, was inaugurated by Dom Pedro II in 1884, and since I missed it the last train in 1963, the bridge has become a tourist attraction of the locality, being one of the oldest bridges of railway network still preserved. Worth the visit ... near the Center! On the way to Sierra beauty. About 15 minutes from the Centre by car.

  • On the way to the mountain of beauty, this beautiful bridge could be better exploited. Is there alone, without guided tours without special maintenance. In Europe, this monument of the Second Empire would have special treatment. Still worth the stop and yields good pictures.

Through a small trail, climbing gently, you can go to the top of the hill where you can sit on a rock high above and have a more privileged.
