History


Description

Cavernas Misteriosas (Mysterious Caves) are a really unique sight. They are animal caves or burrows dug by giant sloths into the thick layer of clay. To say it again: this caves were dug by extinct animals, they are paleoburrows.

The caves are undeveloped and much of the caves are crawls, they are actually no tourist caves. Nevertheless the city government manages the caves and offers guided tours for interested groups. The tours are guided by local cavers. The site is of national fame, as it was featured in an adventure tourism magazine on Brazilian TV. The clips are online, follow the links below, but unfortunately they are in Português - Portuguese.
