What to say about this road? I was grown up travelling every weekend with my parents to the coast and making our stops there for the snack. I remember the fresh air of the mountain and it seemed so big. The road is old, amazing but dangerous to drive. Better go by bike. You will have amazing views from there.

It is a beautiful old cobblestone road that winds it way to the coast. It is absolutely worth it! Even though it rained most of the way, it was still worth it.

From Curitiba you can go to the city of Morretes by the Estrada da Graciosa (Graciosa Road). It is a ancient road that crosses the mountains near the coast inside the astounding rain forest or "Mata Atlântica". The best way is by car, but you can see more adventurous people riding bikes... There are many different stops with wonderful sightsees.... More

Not a highway for sure! :-) Very slow drive - windy, narrow, cobblestone road to the historic town of Morretes. You wouldn't take this road to get anywhere fast, that's for sure. It's beautiful, though, especially on a sunny day (on rainy, cloudy days it tends to be too foggy to enjoy the spectacular views - which is also beautiful... More

It is a road for tourists and for people that want to relax and enjoy nature! It is better if you go on a day that is not raining.

One of my favored things to do on a sunday, drive on the romantic paved graciosa and having lunch in the little colonial village morretes, amid banana trees, ginger and pure nature. Driving on the road while seeing beautiful flowers hanging down the trees, orchids and blooming trees, embracing any shades of green it takes my breath away and understandable... More

On my oppinion, this nature experience is better than the rain forest... This narrow and slow road rests in the hearth of the Floresta Atlântica, and offers you everything you could expect from nature...

You need time and patience to travel this road. This is not a highway as the name suggests in English. It is a scenic drive instead. Wonderful long and winding road with its lush flora and fauna. Take the time and make several stops along the route it is worth it!
