City of Health

Located in the Serra da Mantiqueira mountain range at an altitude of 925 m (3,035 ft), the city of Serra Negra offers plenty of outdoor escapism and cultural sightseeing opportunities. You'll find the main attractions in Serra Negra out on the hills and down in the valleys of the range, with hikes providing great views and wildlife spotting in a pleasantly mild climate. Officially declared a city in 1885, the area has long served as part of the route between Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais. As such, you'll find good examples of colonial architecture in the area, alongside newer monumental structures and modern entertainment.

Where to stay in Serra Negra

With its high elevation and fresh mineral water streams, Serra Negra was formerly a spa town--hence its nickname, the "City of Health." Its origins are reflected in many of the available accommodations, with an emphasis on resort-style hotels, ranging from luxury to standard in the quality of services offered. In the Centro area, you'll find the greatest number of choices, with simple chain hotels and some resorts. Head a little farther out, and the accommodations become more basic (fewer amenities, humble architecture), but they give good access to the surrounding landscape and can have better views than lodgings in the center.
