Matriz de Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Church

Reviewed By GoodideaQuito - Brazil

This cozy church is located in a pretty little town of 30 thousand people namd Vassouras; it is a charming place to visit in Brazil if you like peace and country style. The climate is fresh during the whole year but the best time to go to this region is during the Fesival Vale do Café - last weeks of july, when there are Concerts, farm visits and many activities prepared.
When I arrived there, I felt like travelling in time.

Reviewed By RogCastro - São Paulo, Brazil

Num ambiente informal, pudemos conhecer essa linda fazenda guiados pela proprietário Simone, uma senhora simples e muito simpática que nos permitiu entender a história e o contexto dessa fazenda na região durante o século XIX, bem como as restaurações que se tornaram necessárias após sua aquisição para torná-la sua residência. O local também é utilizado para eventos (casamentos e outros) e tem um ambiente muito agradável e propício para esse tipo de atividade.
