    In addition to the colonial legacy, the musicality and the "Miss JK", Diamantina is surrounded by attractive natuarais that enrich it even more. The cave of Saltpeter is one of them. Is on the outskirts of the city, nestled in a Canyon of quartzite, just so different from limestone caves, more familiar to us, such as the Maquiné. Visits must be scheduled with the NGO that takes care (the hard way), the location, the Biotrópicos, whose headquarters are in the historical center of Diamantina. The tour will be more fruitful. Access is relatively easy, except for wheelchair users, but prefer to go to tennis.

    The cave of Saltpeter is one of the most extraordinary corners of the Espinhaço mountains by their huge rock formations and lush. Ideal for those who want to enjoy the natural beauty of Minas Gerais. The visit has become more interesting with the Alex Biotrópicos Institute as a guide, which brought us valuable information about the environment and the community involvement of Curralinho and local preservation tourism.

    On arrival the cave impresses with your magnificence in the landscape. From inside, the cave setting creates an extreme environmental comfort core, which brings the desire to stay and admire every detail. Our visit was led by Alex, Biotrópicos Institute, which raises the quality of the ride, because through the reports and technical clarification, we have the opportunity to get near the local reality and enjoy their peculiarities. The work developed by the Biotrópicos Institute in the preservation of the cave is commendable and surpasses the purely environmental issue, involving the residents of the District of Curralinho, expanding your sense of belonging and contributing to the strengthening of the economy through tourism. At the headquarters of the district, close to the entrance of the cave, you can find options for accommodation and lunch. Worth program one day to visit, including the Grotto do Salitre, Curralinho and other nearby attractions, such as the bridge of Just World!
