Vila do Biribiri, Diamantina

(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Experience a piece of Brazil’s history with a visit to Vila do Biribiri, an old abandoned textile mill town that was shut down in 1973. The village has been frozen in time with preserved houses of the former employees and the quaint little church. A restaurant called “Raimundo Without Arm”, because the owner really is without is right arm, offers local food and cold beer. The village provides for great hiking and waterfalls about 2 km (1.25 mi) away perfect for a refreshing dip. The village is found within the valley of a green, mountainous region, and is easily accessible from the center of Diamantina, the nearby town. Relax in the gazebo taking in the beautiful landscapes all around you. Put Vila do Biribiri on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Diamantina travel itinerary maker.

  • The village of Biribiri is a magical place, which seems to have stopped in time. House painted white with blue doors and Windows, a kiosk in the center of the village. Charming. There are restaurants, however, by staying in a secluded place, sometimes the machine credit/debit card does not work. But other than that, I found the price very affordable, the hospitable people and the wonderful nature. Worth going to swimming, picnicking or just enjoy nature!

  • Biribiri in tupi guarani means "deep hole". The village is in the lower part between two hills there a river that forms a beautiful waterfall. Could use a little tidying in the margin because there's a Bank of sand that could be tapped for a swim on site. The village was an old textile factory and the workers ' houses were sold and some became Commerce as the restaurants and other were as a summer home. Worth the visit.
