  • The Park is simply stunning, the cave paintings are interesting, is a rich heritage for Brazil, but many Brazilians still don't know him, I recommend for sure.

  • Entry into the Park is required the presence of a guide, for each tab a group of 8 people, 1 Guide costs at about 100 to 200 R$ reias to visit the entire Park goes over 1 month ... There are many pré-horístico sites and wonderful landscapes, under a scorching sun has to have a lot of available, well worth a visit if it's at least a few hours.

  • Wow, wonderful place, in the period of rain the diversity of animals and the colors are more contrasting, however, the Caatinga is spectacular in every way. The rock art, the rock formations, beautiful views are full plate for those looking for excitement. 150 Reais a guide and 15 to enter the Park.
