  • We were at the Carnival. The town full of tourists to know the Jalapão, and simply closed. The hotel didn't know informing anything. We went down there and there were no warnings, no information about the opening hours. Outside signs of poor conservation. A shame because the architecture is very beautiful, and there are few options in town. If you're car, there are good amount of places to park.

  • Memorial quite interesting, although a bit small and quite hot (when I visited, the air conditioning wasn't working). It's still nice to visit.

  • Memorial Carlos Prestes, as many other works by Niemeyer, looks like a building exaggerated for the small stacks. But it was worth it!
