  • I love mountains, so the views of the Serra de São José is a balm. The beauty of cut-outs by joining the horizon is like a painting that hypnotizes. No wonder that this landscape is part of most photos of Tiradentes.

  • When the Tiradentes, set aside a morning to climb the Sierra de San José on foot. The walk is very quiet and begins in the neighborhood, following a well-defined trail! With 30 min, easy to the top, but better make some stops to take pictures and enjoy the visual. The postman is found over the top and legend has it that one should throw a stone where the postman was supposedly buried. Great adventure in Tiradentes. Recommend!

  • An easy walk from access. Some parts we have to be careful because of the shaded areas (MOSS on the ground), especially on the way down. A good bath in the well is a beautiful view of the city.
