  • Today I'll discuss the Speleological patrimony, of the main caves and caverns of São Thomé das Letras/MG. Thanks to the abundance of quartzite and the many cracks formed by the action of time and natural agents (erosions), municipality of São Thomé das Letras can count on These geological wealth, highly threatened by vandalism and mining activity. The caves reveal a "what" of mysticism, because many believe that these places are ideal addresses of ETs and secret passages to other destinations the world's mystics, such as Machu Picchu in Peru, which I also had the honor of knowing. Without having to enter in these passages (laughs) ... In the attached photos we will see: 1). The Cave lion and monument to the ET; 2). the Witch's Stone; 3). Stone pierced; 4). Cave of the Stamped: the mystery surrounding this cave is reason of legends, stories and studies that move a series of professionals and tourists to the site, which is currently shut down for safety and preventive measures. Many esoteric claim to be there a secret entrance to Machu Picchu, you can't even measure the depth of the cave. Such attractions (with the exception of the cave of the Stamped, which is 6 km from the city and is accessible by the road that comes from three Hearts/MG) are all circling the urban perimeter of São Thomé. Recommend to visit them all!

  • São Thomé das Letras is a typical town of the interior of Minas Gerais. Many mountains, waterfalls and caves. The waterfalls are amazing, the look of the horizon is excellent! The city is well served by restaurants and inns. The biggest weak point is the infrastructure. I didn't like the service also in commercial establishments. Typically the miners are very friendly and cordial. It could have been a bad day, but in two places I've been, to ask about the sights, I received responses. Returning the infrastructure. Streets of large stones. Bad for low cars. Have to turn the low speed (very punch). The roads that lead to waterfalls also have many holes and all are unpaved. So much beauty deserved best roads, paved streets. But ... the strong point is the exceptional nature and the tranquility of the place. The waterfall of Sobradinho (16 km from Sao Thomé) is a must!

  • I recommend both I'm going back in March of 2018 for the STL Music Festival! The city has a mystical and inspiring atmosphere, good accommodation and fun is guaranteed in all parts of the city: streets, bars, taverns and nature (beautiful landscapes, waterfalls and rides ...). Well worth checking out!
