It may not be easy to get there, but it's worth it. Right on the top of the Mantiqueira Mountains, Visconde de Mauá, a district of Resende, has attractions that are an invitation to the practice of sports at the same time as for a rest. The mountains and waterfalls are appropriate, for example, for hang gliding, canoeing, and mountain bike.


Of German colonization, the place has a good structure of hotels and restaurants that vary from homemade food from the state of Minas Gerais to the traditional, with a special attention to the dishes prepared with "pinhão" (a typical nut). The Pinhão Festivities and the Gastronomic Festival are already quite famous, and they gather renowned chefs.


Among the natural attractions, one should pay attention to the waterfalls Poção and Escorrega, "Pedra Selada" and "Pico das Prateleiras". The city is about 36km from Resende's urban center, and part of the access road is paved.
