little piece of paradise

You can walk the entire length of the Rio Azuis in just 200 steps. That way you can get an idea of how small it really is. But there is a reason it is considered a river: its flow of approximately 11,000 liters of water per second.

The attraction is also suitable for families with children, as the waters of the river are very calm and shallow. In the space there are also restaurants that serve typical foods of the region and inns for those who want to stay.

An important tip is that, as it is a very small watercourse, tourist awareness must be redoubled. If you have the opportunity to visit this small oasis, collaborate with the local cleaning and enjoy only the essentials: the unique beauty of the place.
