(4.3/5 based on 260+ 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 former factory with the houses were used by employees, has a chapel and a few bars. I was in two times in one for me was the best was "abandoned" and fully. The second time they started selling houses in the village that did look good full of people as if it were a Club and I really enjoyed it.

  • Don't expect this place a refined cuisine and absolute care with hygiene in all dependencies. But those who enjoy a good local food will be pleased. Did lack of professionalism in the administration of the restaurants but there is concern for the preparation of the few dishes served. The months and banks are made of grossly, intentionally. You can take your dog, which is not very cool. Many pictures will be good in this scenario of novels. Small children can play in the grass. If you are Sun strong, there are few shadows on the tables outside.

  • The village of Biribiri was an old textile factory today disabled. It is situated at the edge of a river, common at the time, since I needed to build a small hydroelectric power plant to produce electricity for the factory. Part of the village houses, built for the factory workers ' homes. Has a reasonable restaurant. There's not much to see there, but it's worth the ride for who did know Diamantina.
