Nice but suffer from lack of maintenance. Quite small but can kill about 30 minutes.
The cantine at the entrance serve nice Coco's for drinking. Another place further down the parking lot sales hot corns and is packed with monkeys on its roof and surrounding trees.

They also say that, many years ago a young lady (daughter of a rich farmer) and a catholic priest fell in love to each other, and they hid at this place, which was quite secluded then. On the account of its limpid water fountain they chose that particular place in order to be able to live their impossible love. Although her father had searched everywhere, he never found his daughter alive again. One day, a hunter found their naked bodies, hug to each other at this very spot, so the rich farmer, quite moved, ordered a statue of a naked couple in order to remember his daughter and to celebrate love. The Italian sculptor Giulio Starace then did that in 1929. Besides that, a local poet, Alberto Oliveira, wrote a poem to honour love (even its hardships), and that goes something like that, if you allow me to try:"At this recanto, everything invites to love/ that love is life/then love, love/ whoever brougth so much beauty/the nature essence/ then make a pray, make a pray (and that goes on). It does not matter either if you are with your sweetheart, or all by yourself, that is definetly a place to go whenever you visit Poços, even if is just to enjoy the exuberance of this nature reserve.(The forementioned poem is writen on a bronze plaque, right on the foot of the statue). That worths a while to watch the YouTube Video "Descubra Poços de Caldas - Fonte dos Amores", and if you can watch also "WE ARE POÇOS, a YOUTUBE video inspired by the worldwide famous Pharrell's song "Happy" (they show the statue at the very end of this video).

Best thing about going there is the natural water and to see the wild monkeys. The Fonte is a white statue near a waterfall

One of the shopowners in the park speaks good English (former Alcoa employee) and will happily share his love of rocks. Make sure to ask to be pointed to the Cristo trail- it's not particularly well marked for those without a map, and there are quite a few trails in the area.

Of you are planning to be in Poços de Caldas, take a time to visit this place. If you are tired you can rest and drink a LOT of water.

Quiet location with easy access and parking. Surrounded by a forest where children can feed monkeys and coatis (all loose). It has little trade for crafts and a bar.
Its the begin of the path to the Christ on the top of the hill. (1300m trail - not for older than 50 years old)

If you're in good company be sure to visit this source and meet the statue and the nature of local.Faziam 22 who did not visit the touristic sights of Pocos de Caldas and this still holds encando. The statue of the details of the couple in love are really cool.
Even with a dry year like 2014 in southeastern Brazil still water flows from the mountains of Santo Domingo and delights the place with their noise down the rocks. Has good place to park vehicles and easy access and cleaning. But we believe that the city could improve the appearance and maintenance of the site artezanato trade modernizing it and coaching staff for the variety of Brazil and foreign tourists (we found some).
