Private tours take visitors to the pristine Andorinhas waterfall, located in Parque das Andorinhas, a large environmental protection area. Expert guides can lead you up a series of trails leading to this waterfall, which is famous for its rock formations creating a sort of small cave. These ancient stones attract hundreds of swallows each summer, prompting locals to call this site the "Waterfall of the Swallows." Keep in mind that in order to enter this cavern you will need to go down a short ladder, so comfortable clothes and soft shoes are highly recommended. For those looking for less adventure and more relaxation, the park also offers a variety of activities, like swimming, sunbathing, , and picnicking. Our Ouro Preto trip itinerary planner makes visiting Andorinhas waterfall and other Ouro Preto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The park itself is very good, but the waterfall is super cool because it arises within a cave in the middle of the stones. You have to be a little careful at the entrance because of the rocks and moisture, but is very nice. You can get there by car, but the interesting thing is to go down the path. Get off bus from the Centre of Ouro Preto and leaves at the entrance of the trail. Cool.

  • In fact the Park of the swallows is a perfect place, great structure, clean trails, bathrooms, showers, dressing rooms, proper place and free to barbecue. The waterfall of Andorinhas is beautiful, I was thrilled with the whim of nature. Worth knowing, it is not enough to see the pictures, you need to "feel" this place.

  • Beautiful fall hidden inside a cave, a place with beautiful view of the forest and close to other waterfalls, such as the bride's veil.
