Make sure you book as we arrived at two and due to a school trip could not get in. It was booked for one hour by school trip and closed at four!

The cave has "rooms" with amazing shapes formes over millions of years. It's a place worth visiting by its natural beauty, besides the museum with lots of pieces of fossils and a bit of the history of the region.

This is an amazing site to visit when in Minas Gerais state. The Danish cientis Peter Lund is the discoverer and explorer of many sites in the area. Anthropology and history together.
