  • The ruins are on the way to the archaeological and environmental Park São João Marcos, worth a visit when you're on the way.

  • The ruins shown as attractions are nothing but walls standing all pichadas and abandoned. The Bush takes over and no references showing the tourist spot for visitors. A shame.

  • The ruins are a concrete record of how we can exist at a time, and in a brief poking around, we do part of that time, becoming history. It's a beautiful place, the gateway to Mangaratba Imperial Road connecting one of the richest cities of the province of Rio, São João Marcos to your port in Mangalore. The Imperial Road was the first road toll charge, and then the first multi-lane highway of Brazil. The ruins are in need of revitalization and protection. We have to preserve the historical heritage.
