Moinho Povos Unidos, Holambra

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Holambra
Moinho Povos Unidos is the largest mill in Latin America, which is a perfect replica of the Dutch windmills, and still in function. It serves as a landmark of the Dutch colonization of the city in terms of the architecture and the size of the building, but using wood native to the region. The gorgeous flowers surrounding it are also quite typical of the Dutch style. Inside, you will find a collection of photos and information from other mills. You will also receive a history lesson and see a demonstration of how the food is processed. The view from the top is magnificent.

  • Excellent attraction, located in one of the entrances to the city, in a lovely street that has other attractions, such as Lake and Museum. Mill in actual size.

  • Worth the visit to the mill of the United Nations. You can face the steps, get to the top and have a wonderful view. There's a small fee to visit the mill inside.

  • This is one of the few tourism attractions with an European style around Campinas. The view from the top of the windmill is gorgeous. Do not forget to chat a little with the friendly local guides. They have great histories about Holambra culture and great insights about the engineering tricks of the mill. Tickets are at a reasonable cost and the parking spaces are very well located.
  • What: Holland type windmill Where: Holambra, outskirts of São Paulo How was it: It was nice. A quiet place in the small city of Holambra. We visited the artisanal center just in front of the windmill. Some of our friends went up the windmill for a nicer view of the city. Recommend: Yes, it's a nice thing to do when in Holambra
