The Skyglass project was signed by architects Adriane Wender and Miguel del Río Francos, but the idea for the project came from Santa Catarina businessman Moacir Luiz Bogo and his desire to promote tourism in the Ferradura Valley, in a sustainable way.

The construction of the platform took a year and cost R$ 30 million. 226 tons of concrete, steel and glass were used to make the 68 meter long platform, with 35 meters of balance – part that is suspended over the cliff. In fact, the length of the suspended part gave Skyglass Canela the title of the largest cable-stayed glass platform in the world, beating the world record for constructions above canyons.

It does not stop there. Below the platform, a monorail was built that brings even more emotion to those who visit the park. The Abusado is a unique toy in the world and it is a train of suspended chairs that circulates the lower part of the platform. It allows visitors to contemplate nature from an unparalleled point of view.
