  • For those who enjoy outdoor activities, a good walk through the Sierra is a great option! The place is very beautiful!

  • We did a walk several hours through the Sierra, the path is quiet, but I suggest making the ride accompanied by a guide (which we did), because in some stretches, the track does not have any marking and people can get lost. There are also some excerpts with most dangerous obstacles, then, be accompanied by someone who already knows the region is safer. The visual of the alto da Serra is beautiful, in days of clear sky, you can see several cities. Super recommend meet Tiradentes from this angle.
