Serra das Paridas, Lencois

4.3
#7 of 7 in Parks in Lencois
Although only discovered in 2005, Serra das Paridas is considered one of Brazil's most important archaeological sites because of its remarkable preservation. The rocks at Paridas are covered with hundreds of prehistoric paintings, including human and animal figures, geometric shapes, and even unknown shapes resembling UFOs. Different layers of graphics suggest that the site was used by different groups in successive time periods, with current estimates suggesting the 'artists' lived some 9,000 to 12,000 years ago. Most visits to the site are followed by a trip to the nearby Mosquito Waterfall.

  • We went with a guide who presented the figures and told the story of the place. It really is fascinating to contact our ancestors through the rock paintings.

  • Fantastic place! You have to hire a guide, because the Park has a roadblock and might be locked, the Guide has the key. Access is from compacted Earth and cute ... careful not to bog down, I was super quiet truck, but small car have to follow guidance in the Guide, because jamming! It is worth noting that without the drive you can't reach. It's a place that does not pass anyone and does not have any trade or attempt to go late afternoon on your own, great chances to lose! The sale of tickets is made by back to Ecotourism Park (75) 99963-1269, in Sheets, cards accepted the ticket costs R $25.00. Worth hiring a guide in the guides ' Association that the Agency could still negotiate, negotiate value that has always left for guide chorinho R $140.00 could have done well, now I know next time to bargain will be greater , lol. Prices September/2017.
