This was one of the interesting places to visit. The story behind it made it nice and the transformation the place underwent is just great. A really must see place.

Nice place to know what is happening with the ore from Para. One of the main source of a variety of otes and exotic fruits of the globe. An old jail that has turned into a useful museum.
