At the beginning of the 19th century, as an incentive from the Brazilian government to populate more distant regions, a large contingent of European immigrants arrived in the Brazil looking for fertile lands, ready to offer their labor, fleeing an impoverished Europe. One of the nationalities that arrived in force was Italian. Until today it is possible to notice the traces of Italian colonization throughout the south and southeast of Brazil, but some villages exude a practically untouched Italian culture.

It is the case of stone paths. Located inside the city of Bento Gonçalves, at the Rio Grande do Sul, the route is listed as a historical heritage of the state. Stone and wooden houses, some over 100 years old, remain preserved, bringing the charm of northern Italy to the public. Many are still active, such as mills, colonial canteens, looms, wineries, pasta houses, among others.

The 12 km tour of the stone paths it lasts a whole day, has more than 43 observation points and 20 visitation points. Open every day of the year from 9 am to 5:30 pm, the properties that offer service to visitors are private properties, managed by families descended from Italian immigrants. Most carry out a demonstration and explanation of the place and tasting of cheeses, salami, preserves, sweets, juices, jams, biscuits, yogurts, pasta and artisanal wines, mate for mate and products based on sheep's milk. Some establishments charge a fee per visitor.
