Andorinhas waterfall, Ouro Preto
(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Waterfall with long walk if you walk to the Park. Site organized with several indications. Don't miss the waterfall with the underground cave.

  • For those who enjoyed nature, waterfall and everything else, this is a good choice. Nice location, pleasant, with somewhat limited access due to distance, but nothing prevents you from enjoying what the site offers.

  • I nominate for all travelers and for people who want a greater contact with nature. The waterfall is inside a cave of cinch access. Very close to the city centre, reaching to the entrance to the Park of andorinhas and short walk. It's worth it! Within the park there are other waterfalls of the same course of the river and there is also climbing and sporting sectors bolders. The Park also found the headwaters of the rio das velhas. Enjoy
