To get started, we will go to a beautiful place with a wide view of the city and the region. Next, we will meet an alambique, which is a local handcrafted liquor distillery that produces typical cachaças from the region.

Afterward, we will go to a neighborhood that is on the top of the plateau, which has one of the most beautiful views of Pedra do Baú and Gonçalves valley. Then, we will visit two waterfalls with views of the gorgeous surrounding landscape.
Once the morning plans are accomplished, we will have lunch in one of the region’s most excellent restaurants of typical homemade dishes. In the afternoon, we will ascend the Stone of São Domingos, which is at an altitude of 6725 ft. At the top, we’ll have breathtaking views of the regions of Campos do Jordão, Monte Verde, Cambui, Córrego do Bom Jesus, Extrema, Estiva, Pouso Alegre, and many others.
