  • 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.

  • The place is beautiful, impressive view up close the story of man in America. In addition to the paintings, the rock formations are breathtaking. The guides are local and often understand much of the area. The trail is long, but for the most part have no great difficulty. The paintings are mostly well protected and preserved. For a more complete experience, it is essential to know the FUNDHAM.
