Must go

This canyon is bigger the Itaimbezinho, and the best part is that it's free for visitation. You would be able to take amazing pictures and enjoy a great view. Really recommend it.

The weather conditions must be good and clean air for the sight seeing. 1,5km walk to reach the top of the mountain is worth the effort.

To connect with nature and feel part of the environment is almost impossible in this amazing place. The access trails to the canyon in very good, you can contemplate the amazingness of this wonderful place. This place is not just a good spot for photographs but also a place to relax and thing about life.

want to have some adventure? No matter if you come to the top or do a hike in the bottom, it is just the most beautiful place I've ever seen. It is enormous and if you get lucky you will be able to see the Atlantic ocean from the top if the fog does not get in the way. Breath... More

With good access trails you can contemplate the wonderful landscapes. At the top you can take photos from the Torres beach and mountains far from the canyon.

I love this Canyon if you are lucky you could see the sea and Torres. A place to take lots of pictures. Has three trails make all of them you will enjoy for sure. You could go any time you want.

It's plain nature, untouched, breathtaking. Easy access to astonishing views, nothing you see in pics will show you what it really is. There's no structure at all and I found this fact nice cause it isn't artificial. We didn't climb all the way to the very top cause we'd seen enough, no need. You don't pay anything, you just take...
