Catedral de Pedra

Reviewed By Stevan D - Provo, Utah

Although relatively simple and stately inside, the Cathedral of Stone comes alive at night with a recorded concert of fine music, narration, and even a compliment for the visiting traveler. Exterior lights illuminate the church as the musical score continues, changing colorations and styles as the program progresses. Completely delightful, and an appropriate tribute to our Lord.

Black Lake

Reviewed By anapin - Rio de Janeiro, RJ

Going to Black Lake go to the Swans pedal boats on the lake... It's very romantic and the views are gorgeous, specially the blue flowers called "hortensias"... There are some little stores with very interesting things to buy as souvenirs... And, yes, there are clean restrooms for free... Black Lake is a must go...

Estivemos na Páscoa de 2018 e fizemos o pacote de almoço harmonizado. Nos receberam muito bem! Foi um almoço maravilhoso com direito a vários vinhos e espumantes, além da comida típica e o local. E o melhor, o almoço foi junto aos vinhos! Adoramos!

Miragem Livraria

Reviewed By PierreLiljefeldt - Stockholm, Sweden

I love books and this is one of the coziest, best decorated bookshops I've ever seen. Very surprising for being a small city in the countryside of Brazil. Not least, they have an excellent section of classical Brazilian literature, with focus on authors from southern Brazil. If in Sao Francisco de Paula, Miragem Livraria is a must!

Canyon Monte Negro

Reviewed By JRaupp - Rio de Janeiro, RJ

It is far, you need to drive through a dirt road, the weather is unstable and may suddenly fog in a couple of minutes. But if you have the luck to get there in a clean and pleasant day, you will see an amazing view of the canyon. If you are a nature lover, try to learn with local people about the visibility and go.

Sao Pellegrino Church

Reviewed By Vanessa P - Calgary, Canada

It is for sure a great art work to look at. Outside you don't realize how beautiful is inside. But once you got in you see Italian marble and European style inspired work. Worth to stop!

Ruins of Sao Miguel das Missoes

One of five Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses Missions in Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil.

Reviewed By Andrew M - Dallas, Texas

I visited Sao Miguel das Missoes at the start of my 4 month trip to Brazil, arriving there from Santana de Livramento on the Brazil / Uruguayan border via a couple of lengthy bus rides. The ruins and the site are quite remarkable and well worth seeing. The sound and light show is also interesting if you have good Portuguese as it's not available in other languages. Keep your distance from the many school trips that come to see the show as you won't hear anything if you're near them.
The town itself is nothing special. There are a few simple restaurants and a few bars, though not much going on overall. Thankfully there is very good (though extremely overpriced) hostel right next to the ruins and this is a good place to meet other travellers, who will be mostly Brazilian. Again, you'll be limited if your Portuguese isn't very good as the staff don't speak any English and nor will most of the guests. I highly recommend camping on the hostel grounds if you have a tent (less than half the price a dorm bed).
Overall, the site is well worth visiting if you're heading this way. It's a long way from everything else of interest so weigh it up if you're thinking about making a special trip out this way.
