Buraco do Padre

“Buraco do Padre” is one of the main touristic attractions of “Campos Gerais”, the place received this name because of the Jesuits who used the place as a local for meditation many years ago.

Despite of having access in its base, “Buraco do Padre” can be considered a type of cave and has an important 30 meters high cascade, coming from the river “Quebra Perna”. The origin of these structures is given due to the circulation of superficial water on the sedimentary rocks (sandstones). This water acidified by the presence of organic matter erodes and promotes the erosion of the rocks.
