Casa de Pedra is world famous for being the cave with the largest cave entrance. It is located at the P.E.T.A.R. National Park, close to the núcleo (Visitor Center) of the same name. To reach this visitor center a drive of 16km from Iporanga on a dirt road with numerous wooden bridges is necessary. From the visitor center an interpretative trail starts to the 140m high Laje Branca (White Flagstone) and the Casa de Pedra. The cave entrance is freely accessible, the cave behind is closed to the public and can not be visited.
