  • Church Hill has easy access, all paved and with beautiful view. A lot of wind and cold are part of the program and combines well with the visual. Yields beautiful photos. Best to visit between 11 and 4:00 pm according to the clouds and fog.

  • the location is beautiful, but could be more informative about the type of vegetation and on the history of the formation of the pedra furada. But it is essential to do this tour.

  • Come to the Hill of the Church and be able to contemplate the pedra furada is able to feel and see the great power of nature. Wonder how all that landscape was formed is to travel in the imagination.

  • Beautiful place, both in summer and in winter, where you can hopefully see snow. To go to the site it is necessary to get permission in the town of Urubici. Address: AV. Pedro B Warmeling, 116, Urubici-SC or put ICMBio Urubici on google maps ... Good ride!

  • A beautiful place to meet, I visit this place to nais of 20 years and do not tire of going there, in 1996 in knee-deep snow picked up there on the Hill of the Church and in 2010 I got a snow where we can't even get to the top of the Hill because there was a lot of snow and ice on the runway. On good days the visual is very worthwhile, the place is beautiful.

  • Breathtaking view to the Pedra Furada. Have to get tickets at the ICMBio (behind the Bank of Brazil). Bounds of places to visit. I went up at the end of the day I arrived. As mentioned in the enconteei a wall of fog ICMBio and didn't see anything. Repeat the next morning and entered by the 8:00 in the morning, with ticket withdrawn the day before. It was worth it. No crowd as the day before. I was alone and gave to enjoy easy views
