4.5
#2 of 15 in Sightseeing in Diamantina
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
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.
