  • I've been in morro de São Paulo (March/sp), are renovating the path that leads to the ruins. From afar it seems very pretty and preserved, however, you can't get there.

  • What little we could see was from the road to the hotel all the circuit is still in reforms. A shame because we would have liked very much to explore it.
