  • The Pedra Furada can be sighted from the Morro da Igreja, with a privileged view. Can also be seen up close, with a walk, necessarily guided, 4 hours. We do not venture that far, why would you need a whole day, and fitness.

  • This is a nice drive up a good road. The site offers adequate parking a great views. There were no facilities there so you may want to bring snacks and water.  more »
  • Due to your altitude you pass through the clouds, the location is fantastic. but to climb the Hill of the Church where the pedra furada should pay attention to the conditions of the time.

  • Great view... Worth the effort
  • Top!
  • Wonderful landscape. To reach the site you must get a permit. Is divine in any time of year! In winter the snow makes a glamorous touch.

  • The Pedra Furada is almost the symbol of the city of Urubici (despite belonging to Orleans!) and one of the postcards of the Serra Catarinense. From the top of Morro da Igreja, she dispute the attention – or rather, make up the landscape of the abundant nature of the place. Is a visual overwhelming! It is a natural rock formation with about of 10 meters in diameter and the height of the hole is 5 metres. You can get there close, but that requires an authorization of Aeronautics, the accompaniment of a guide, and of course an excellent fitness to do the trail which is considered pretty heavy. Already I've settled in just see it from the top of the Hill! And the look is stunning! Just don't take your breath away because air is not lacking on the Hill!
