  • Highlight of the ecological tourism in Cordisburgo, the cave for its ancient geology impresses Maquiné. The structure is adequate and safe access. Lighting of the spaces as well. The guides are well trained. Watch the air a bit muffled on the path. Can restrict the visit to those who have problems in confined environments. But it's worth it to meet her. In the surroundings, very interesting handicraft shops. There is also a Museum next to the Grotto. But not visited by time constraints. If possible, visit the cave out of the weekend. During this period the flow of visitors is much larger.

  • Hot travel without hassle. Cordisburgo is very quiet and peaceful, but full of history. Visit the Grotto with the family, with adventurous spirit and discoverer. Peter Lund explored and catalogued this site, and you can create the same "mood" with the children. Flashlight, camera, snacks can complement the tour. Half a day is enough!

  • One of the most beautiful caves of Minas Gerais. Huge and with good brightness. A great site for those who love nature, history, geography and to learn more about some facts of the site. Fine structure of toilets, restaurant and even a small museum. Highly recommended!
