  • Access signaled, is the same which leads to Fervedouro Chri's. At the fork of the road, N to the left and right Mumbuca. The community has about 60 families and 200 people. It's been 4 years who have internet. Looks like it's at school, so the guys is sitting under the tree, in front of the school to use the wifi. The community lives basically small creations and subsistence agriculture, primarily cattle and poultry. The income is supplemented by tourism, mainly by Golden grass handicraft. In the craft shop, while the tourist admires and choose the products, the children sing. There is a restaurant in the community. This is the most famous and largest community in the region, but there are other communities that also lives on the Golden grass handicraft, like the community of Tick.

  • Suggestion: visit the village of Mumbuca paying attention not only in the handicraft of such Golden grass (the pieces are beautiful, by the way). Try to imagine that Brazil was the last country in the world to abolish slavery (May 13, 1888). And that people is a direct descendant of those human beings once called "black ivory". Worth a little quote from the book "Brazil, a country of the future" by Stefan Sweig: "To the Emperor, this problem becomes more and more a personal conflict. As liberal and democratic as intellectual, sentimental in nature, but also with a legacy habsburguiana something fira, slavery is something terrible to him. He shows his disgust clear to all those who deal with this shameful trade by refusing tenaciously to grant a title of nobility or distinction even more Rico man who has made his fortune thanks to slave labor ".
