Moinho Povos Unidos, Holambra

#1 of 12 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.

    During the week the mill is closed, it's beautiful but we can't go in, but it's nice to give a passed even if it is to take a picture in front, impresses with size.

    The beautiful building draws attention and challenges us to climb up to the lookout point, where you will find around Holambra. At the entrance to the mill works service to tourists and there are selling souvenirs, as well as for a assorted craft shop on the same grounds of the mill and the store are met by the artisans and the prices are attractive,

    The visit is Interesting, but expect to see the whole city from the top of the mill, but from up there you can take good pictures and learn a little bit more of the history of the city

    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

    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.
