Fazenda Babilonia, Pirenopolis

4.4
#3 of 48 in Outdoors in State of Goias
Built in 18th century, Fazenda Babilonia was carefully preserved to tell a story of Brazil’s historical values. Considered a national heritage, the farm mansion was built by slaves using stones, wood, and adobe. Some of the wooden pillars are 15 m (49 ft) long and half a meter (2 ft) wide. The main reason to visit the farm is for an intense gastronomic trip by trying the local cuisine of the region. Go for breakfast, and savor some of 30 dishes provided, made from products from the farm. The mansion includes a large balcony, slave quarters, dining room and surrounding buildings.

    The farm with more than 200 years of tradition and whose owners with love and dedication to preserve its origins. Fantastic site where you learn eating and seeing the culture, where sugar cane was the generating source.

    The farm Babylon stands out for its immense and imposing colonial-style mansion, built in walls of Adobe and Wattle, with great beams and Struts of Centennial guaritas and covered with tiles. The beautiful chapel dedicated to Our Lady of conception, it is opposite the big veranda, this also gives access to the old sugar cane mill, where today is the old structure of the Engenho São Joaquim and exposure of several antique pieces, as beds with braided leather footstool, oxcarts, feeders, tools The farm offers two ways to access, just guided visitation or visitation with entitlement to sick colonial breakfast, who choose this option does not need to worry about lunch, because the colonial coffee sustains the visitor to dinner by the quantity and quality of the dishes served, including: coffee, milk, cakes, doughnuts, cookies, breads, scones, me a medal, Hick sausage , meat balls (pellets), cooked corn, cream cheese, fresh cheese, melted peanut butter cups of meat, boiled cassava, molasses, rum, juice sweetened with brown sugar, man naked baked in banana leaf, meat, rendenho, among other treats produced in own farm. The visitation is guided and very well explained, thanks much to visit and the great conversation I had with Mrs. Telma, owner of Fazenda Babylon and great-granddaughter of Priest Simeon, which acquired the farm in 1864. The visitor has also access to the gardens, mill, water spout, animals. The whole property is surrounded by walls of stones, made by more than 200 slaves who were the owners of the farm. Worth every minute, I recommend to all!

    Excellent choice for those who want to know more of the history of Brazil and of the settlement of the Midwest. One of the most traditional and important farms of the region with guidance service with great quality and good information coordinated by Telma, owner of the farm Owner and creator of the project. After the tour enjoy a rich history and delicious "lunch", far from being just a colonial breakfast given the variety and amount of everything that is served. It's worth a lot of walking, and the disclosure of this beautiful work. This report includes an unprecedented photo that tells a little of this history, one about the barbed wire is solid wood. Worth much the ride

    Food care the place is exceptional! The girls in the kitchen are thoughtful myth, as well as the owner and guide. The breakfast-it's worth a good lunch-cost R$78,00, and has much choice. It's a place worth knowing not only the coffee, but also by all local history.
