  • Penedinho peak is one of the main attractions of Penedo for both common as for travelers from ecotourism. The trail to the peak is on private property, requiring a security clearance. Authorization is obtained in Chocolate House, not to be confused with the Chocolate Factory. After reading and filling out a form by the responsible of the trail in Chocolate House, obtained permission to enter. The form contains basic information on the care. With the authorization in hand, traverses more 5 minute drive to the entrance of private property, where the access trail to the peak. Currently, there is a plate written Penedinho peak at the entrance of the property. The trail to the peak is lightweight and the average time of ascent is from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the fitness. The end of the trail is marked by a cross before the cliff. The stories told is that the cross was placed after the death of a father, which went over the cliff after being pushed to a mass, but there's no on-site nothing veracity to this tale of the region.

  • Beautiful view of the city, but there's nothing up there just the view. The peak is private and needs permission to enter. Tiring track, but does not require any special equipment.

  • You have to get permission and pay the House of chocolate. With children is fun because it is an adventure that they will hold. I recommend not to elderly or sedentary and obese enough. Has a part in the top dangerous because of a cliff. But it's just taking children who are aware of the danger. Very small don't take. This Cliff is just a part and you're near (only if you want to get closer). Many ladies and gentlemen go up and down with sandals. Worth a go.
