We’ve been in Brazil for a few days and now that we’ve acclimated, we decided to take a trip to the historic town of Pirenópolis in the Goias state of Brazil. Ludmilla was so excited for me to see this little gem and I can see why. This city was founded by the Portugese in 1727, who came for the massive gold deposits found in the area. Churches were built from this wealth and the city began it’s golden age. It’s known for its colonial architecture and numerous waterfalls scattered throughout the area. There are tons of festivals throughout the year, the most important one being the Festa do Espirito Santo. Nowadays this town is known for it’s hippie culture and laid back atmosphere.
Beautiful colonial architecture!!
We had a delicious dinner that was very typical Brazilian food!
This is a great area for hiking, (which we did down to a beautiful waterfall) relaxing in the sunshine and walking the super cute streets in the evening.
A little bit of Pirenópolis!!
Beijos e Tchau!
