There´s only a small easy climbing section that you climb with a guide & all safety equipment. At the top you can get the best view of all the beaches of south and west zones, the main mountains, and if you lucky you can see base jumpers and wing suits crossing the sky to land on the beach!

São Pedro da Serra - Unique At Mountain Top

São Pedro da Serra - Unique At Mountain Top

São Pedro da Serra is a pearl! Strolling along the Main Street, it keeps reminding me of a beautiful cenographic town of one of those Brazilian soap operas. Almost everything perfectly in place. Each step gives you a view of a picture, in which the colors of the city's Arquitecture match in harmony with the surrounding Nature. Like in a frame. It looks just amazing.
