  • The cave is wonderful! The size of the halls and their features are impressive and the play of light enhances even more the grandeur of it all. Access is easy because the ground is lined.

  • The cave is a very interesting ride, because its size is impressive and has a lot of information about the process of formation of caves. The guides are great and before entering there is a small museum that is part of the program, where a setting for the ride. Is very worthwhile, despite having 7 big halls, there are no major difficulties on the path, you can (and should) be made by children. You can go from BH, because it is 100 km from Belo Horizonte.

  • The cave of Maniqué, located in Cordisburgo, MG (approx. 123km from the capital Belo Horizonte) is the first brazilian cave prepared to receive tourists. The view at the place is guided, lasts 1 hour and more or less throughout walk it is possible to have information about the training and the whole story. The ride is quiet does not require any physical preparation, because all the way to the cave is loud and with good floor plan, the only curious thing is that inside it's very hot, so if you're on a cold day you may have to take off your coat. The entrance to this super experience different costs 20.00 R$ (per person) and the next to the entrance of the cave there are cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops too.
