I really enjoyed the beautiful view plus the interesting history about it which is located in their very own Atlantic Forest. Also I enjoyed the sharing of the knowledgeable and very friendly and kind tour guide Sir Denis who showed me the beauty of one of their tourist attractions.

It was a wonderful hiking day (ca. 15 km) which we enjoyed very much. Denis is an excellent tour guide with such a huge knowledge about the regional fauna, flora and history. It was a pleasure to listen and learn. :) Thank you for that great day and experience.
