  • Highly conserved, full of history and stories. A place that once was a required step of men and goods from and to Brasil.Un huge place, with all the services of post of stagecoaches and wagon for 2 centuries ago. It draws attention to the good state of conservation, the bridge and the first toll on this Earth System. You can spend a few beautiful hours in a place peaceful, clean and pleasant. The best time to go, is in spring or autumn.
