  • Located in Morro da Vargem in Ibiraçu, this monastery is a great place to stroll in family and groups. Already realized also that courses were quite productive. Who gets the chance, here's a great point. Remembering that the visits only occur on Sundays and need confirmation via phone (when there are other programs the site is closed to visitors). On the site of the monastery has the tel for confirmation.

  • Quiet place in the local mountains. Has yoga classes, walking around the area, and many animals, such as Tortoise, also have spout where pure mineral water gushes and a gift shop. For those who want to relax, I recommend

  • When you think about visiting a monastery believe what people think at the religious or spiritual side for him, but the site offers guided tour that elucidates the visitor beyond the spiritual issues. It's interesting and surprising to note that there are behavioral issues, cultural etc. in addition to the General knowledge of the people. This no doubt makes a visit not to be missed! And if you're thinking of mold on your couch I say that if you take into account the proximity with the big win and the ease in access I believe your laziness will make you eat flies over a weekend. There are beautiful landscapes, monuments that impress and the host is nice. It is worth mentioning that the site is open for visitation only on Sundays and has facilities like cafeteria.
