Whoever passes the road that connects Santa Rita to Passa Vinte, already knows the beautiful landscape in which Cachoeira das Andorinhas is located. The visit to the waterfall is one of the new tours offered by the guide Gil Cunha, the waterfall is about 50 m high.


Mr. Márcio Mendonça's property was chosen as an attraction of the "Talentos do Brasil Rural" project, in which the Ministry of Agrarian Development and the Ministry of Tourism in partnership with SEBRAE aims to develop family farming based on the market tourism. Those who visit the waterfall have the opportunity to experience life in the countryside, see manual milking on cows, growing vegetables, etc.

The tip to eat that snack or that delicious lunch from Minas Gerais is Pesqueiro do Zé Darcy 3km from the city, an undertaking that is also part of family farming and the Talentos do Brasil Rural Project.
