  • It is an area with rocks that have coloured sands. Is quite interesting, is usually done in the script with the Serrano, Cachoeirinha, Cachoeira da Primavera, Halley Pit and gazebo.

  • Short walk, very interesting, curious. It is close to the Center, Serrano. Place to take beautiful photos.

  • The colored sands are rock formations of different sizes and aspects. Is near the city of Lençóis and can walk quietly, despite going through some obstacles, as all roads to the attractions of the Chapada Diamantina .... kkkk worth knowing and doing a lot of nice pictures there.

  • Nice to know and go up the waterfall. But I suggest going with a guide, because it is possible to get lost in the site.
