The sanctuary is run by a family and produces all the foods that are served for the brunch which is delicious. The brunch is available until about 4:30 pm and is reasonably priced at about... More

This is the third time I've been there and I really enjoyed it. This time I took a group of friends from the US and they just loved the variety of bread, jelly, juice etc. It is really worth.

Vagafogo's brunch was incredible! The home-made breads and rolls were outstanding. Almost all were local products from the Brazilian cerrado. The jams and chutneys were out-of-this world. The fruit, yogurt and granola were delicious. The mango and cashew fruit juice they served tasted great. And the home-made whipped cream for the dessert waffle was heavenly. The owners were gracious hosts... More

There was more walking to see the sanctuary than I could do - but the brunch that was prepared for us was fabulous. The chef/owner told us which sauces and other flavors to use with which parts of the meal. It was amazing!

A beautiful forest setting outside the historic town of Pirenopolis. The zip line was great fun but it is also a great place for birdwatching and sighting monkeys. Also an interesting selection of dried fruits native to the region.

Very kind owners who can explain the cerrado plants and animals. They are keeping the area preserved, so it is interesting to see. Awesome brunch with lots of jellies, relishes, and chutneys. Lots to taste.

The Santuario consists of two attractions: the nearby properly maintained walking paths and the brunch-restaurant. We enjoyed both and it took nearly three hours (without a relaxation break at a natural pool). For the walk you need stable footwear and an insect repellent (buy one in Brazil, the European ones do not work properly). No big attractions await you but... More

Excellent brunch, with a huge variety of home made foods, jellies and breads. The natural pool and small waterfall are fine, but good to relax and chill out. The owner is nice and very supportive.

Lovely place - enjoyed the brunch and the walk very much and LOVED that we could take our dog. She had a great time too. The owners were fun to chat with and the jams and other foods they sell are yummy. This was our favorite stop on our trip to Piri.

The owners are perfect hosts. The homemade food is delicious. There is a beautiful walk (around 1 hour) through the woods where you can bathe in a stream. Worth going to this fantastic place.
