    There are no signs on the route, we asked some locals to find it. The place is a well-kept Park, at the entrance of the cave there is a small chapel and back access to a cave that surprises.

    The cave really surprised me. On your entry there is a chapel and behind the same you have access to a "cave", with multiple cameras. There is a whole story about how she was used by Blacks fleeing from farms in search of quilombos. Certainly it is worth visiting the Chapel and if go in the cave.

    Visit the gruta da Lapa without knowing that we shall know a quilombo where escaped slaves hid of the captains of the Bush. Place of difficult access without lights, without water and with little space. We had to go through the cracks to get a slightly larger lounge. The Guide years showed signs of iron ore on the walls of the cave.

Where to stay in Mariana

Many of the most convenient places to stay in Mariana lie within a walkable distance of one of the city's main squares, the Praca Tancredo Neves. A surprising array of accommodation options cluster in the town core, from family-run bed and breakfasts and shared houses to more upscale, resort-style hotels complete with swimming pools. Keep an eye out for "pousadas," independently-owned guesthouses or lodges, often within a historical mansion or residential building. Alternatively, nearby Ouro Preto features a larger array of accommodations, though you'll need to bus or drive into Mariana.
