Pedra da Macela, Cunha

(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
At 1840 meters (over 6,000 ft) above sea level, you will find Pedra da Macela, bordering the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The 360-degree panoramic views of the Cunha region will take your breath away … if the hike up doesn’t, that is. You can drive up the dirt road to the gate where you will leave your car, and then walk about 2 km (1.25 mi) up the paved road to the top. The spectacular views of the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other are well worth your effort. There is no infrastructure so bring water, sunscreen, maybe some snacks, and definitely your walking shoes. Use our Cunha trip generator to arrange your visit to Pedra da Macela and other attractions in Cunha.

  • The access road to Achyrocline Satureioides stone is poorly preserved and full of holes. The trail, although large and almost all cemented, possesses great declivity in almost all the way, requiring a good fitness of the visitor. The view from the top is fantastic!

  • Every time I go to the wedge, I do my best to get on top of the stone of achyrocline satureioides ... for those who like to overcome challenges, this is an excellent opportunity ... it took me 3:00 to get to the top, as I'm up in 30 minutes. Yes. 30 minutes! Who likes to admire beautiful landscapes, this is the ride! From up there you can see the whole Bay of Parati. Viewed?
