4.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
The site of one of the last fragments of undisturbed Cerrado (tropical savanna), Pireneus state park is rich in biodiversity and ancient rock formations. Visit the second highest peak in the state to see 2-billion-year-old blocks of quartz and sandstone, which are home to many colorful lichens, rare cacti, and hundreds of species of orchids. Nearby are dozens of waterfalls, as well as three mountain peaks offering panoramic views of the Central Plateau of Brazil. Many trails around this area attract hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. Whatever you choose to do here, don’t forget to bring a camera. If you stay for the sunset, which is highly recommended by locals, bring a warm sweater. Temperatures drop quickly once the sun goes down.

  • If you want excitement this is the place. Geologists and nature lovers will be enchanted with the rock formations that arose in the region after an earthquake. And climb the Pyrenees is something for those who have no fear of heights, because the trail is steep and at times the most city people can watch the sunset from above in a gazebo. Spectacular view, but that gives butterflies.

  • We went in the afternoon and by the numerous reports from here we decided to pick up a city guide, after a brief search we decided Tilapatur Q is next to the Church which was the only one who was just the path State Park, with the same time Q the other did the Pyrenees peak + waterfalls ... IE were several stops in small waterfalls, a small town of stone (with a class on the formation of the site), visitation of the dry forest and humid forest, stop at a lookout point, standing on a path (with class on the cerrado biome) and finally the ascent of the peak of the Pyrenees with a little of the history of the city. All this with much good humor and without tiring! In our case, it was cloudy and I couldn't see the sunset ... But worth every penny go with the Guide ... Alone would probably go straight to Q by the way the road Eh bad flagged and the peak does not have any structure. Only a guardhouse at the entrance

  • Access is by road of clod, but worth going to watch the sunset. The view is impressive, is the highest point of Goiás, with 1,385 meters of altitude.
