What to Expect
Visit: Santuario do Caraca, Estrada do Caraca _ km 9 Reserva Particular do Santuário do Caraça, Catas Altas, State of Minas Gerais 35969-000 Brazil

Located in the municipalities of Catas Altas and Santa Bárbara, with 11,233 hectares, it is a property of the Brazilian Province of the Congregation of the Mission. Caraça - as it is commonly called - is a "center of spirituality and mission, of culture and education, of environmental conservation, leisure and tourism" (Plan of Action for Caraça 2007-2012, page 1). And still:
complex sanctuario do caraca Catholic institution, of the Vincentian family, with various social purposes, among them the missionary and the attention to the poor;
Family of educators - college / seminary - formed by the Fathers, confreres, alumni, researchers and collaborators;
Center for pilgrimage, culture, education, tourism and ecology;
Private Reserve of Natural Heritage, component of the APA South of the RMBH and the Biosphere Reserve;
Center for environmental education and production of scientific knowledge, as a productive field of academic research;
Cultural Heritage of Brazil, with federal, state and municipal levels;
One of the 7 Wonders of the Royal Road;
A multiple tourist enterprise (inn, restaurant, snack bar, shop and natural and cultural attractions) that generates direct employment for about 70 inhabitants of the region in which it is inserted and that foments an annual tourist flow larger than the sum of the populations of the two cities where it is located, thus, marking the tourist identity of the region and conditioning environment conducive to the emergence of other businesses and enterprises in the microregional tourism chain.
It is therefore a complex structure, with multiple functions, roles and personalities that must harmoniously integrate to form an efficient and qualified unit. In this context, four basic axes that constitute the integrality of Caraça stand out:
Preservation, conservation and environmental education (RPPN, visitor center and trails)
Education, culture, science (Architectural complex, museum and library).
Vicentino Center Missionary of spirituality, religion and pilgrimage (Sanctuary and Curato)
Tourist Complex (inn, restaurant, shop, snack bar, bar routes and attractions);
The Caraça Sanctuary Complex is the total property of 11,233 hectares, where the Sanctuary Architectural Complex is located, the RPPN area (10,187 ha area), and parts identified by the owner as management areas. In the Architectural Complex are the neogothic church, the building of the old college (now museum and library) and the inn. In the area of management are located Fazenda do Engenho, the Boia Hole, the Fazenda do Capivari.
