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. To visit Vila do Biribiri and other attractions in Diamantina, use our Diamantina vacation builder tool .

  • Very withdrawn, it is distinguished by its habitat that n has not evolved since its creation in the 19th century. While spartan but well-kept rooms. The breakfast is frugal and nice friendly and patient when we do not speak Portuguese.

  • Perfect place to rest your head and relax! Beautiful waterfalls, very cozy village to spend the day and a nice lunch in the restaurant of the Raymond without arm. Worth checking out ...

  • Who goes to the playground Biribiri, cannot fail to meet. Village beautiful and nostalgic, but basically the attraction is architectural and facilities. Typical food options.
