  • The Hall of coloured sands is located near the center of Lençóis, in the path of the Serrano River. Is usually done along with the tour of the Serrano River, Cachoeirinha and Cauldrons. Worth to visit the rock formations and the sand of different colours.

  • Easy-to-access place, quite interesting, to me what he called more attention was the placement of the rocks.

  • Just by passing. Normally this walk is included in other tracks made in the region. It's worth knowing the place where has the coloured sands that make regional handicrafts have such a variety of color.
