Serra do Rola-Moca State Park, Nova Lima

4.2
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Nova Lima
A large green area set aside for the protection of a diverse ecosystem, Serra do Rola-Moca State Park harbors a unique community of plants and animals called the canga, composed of over 200 plant species divided up into 70 families. At this park you can see pineapple-like bromeliads, orchids, and succulents resembling flora usually exclusive to desert areas. You can also catch a glimpse of one of two deer species living here. Walk the trails alone or with a guided group, but don't forget to wear a sweater as the elevation here is high and temperatures have a tendency to drop quickly in the afternoon hours. Bring a blanket and stay late to see the setting sun disappear behind these verdant mountains. To visit Serra do Rola-Moca State Park on your trip to Nova Lima, use our Nova Lima trip planner .

  • The place is wonderful and the view from up there is beautiful! Too bad the road that bisects the site be unsafe, especially at night.

  • The Park is in the back of the Canada Garden in Nova Lima, and is the best access to White House (district of Brumadinho with good restaurants). The view from the gazebo is amazing and is one of the most beautiful of MG is worth stopping for photos and to see the sunset, the park features a centre of reference for the tourist with good tips about the Park and nature preserve. worth a visit too.

  • Visit the Park on sunny days is perfect. Especially in the evening, the place is just amazing to take beautiful pictures. You can photograph a sunset divine. Recommend, if only to photograph. A lot of attention on the road, full of dangerous curves, mto. And it's so close to BH.
