Catedral de Sao Carlos Borromeu

Reviewed By DanieMilaneto - Sao Carlos, SP

Ponto turístico da cidade é uma Catedral imponente e muito bela, a noite sua cúpula é iluminada deixando-a ainda mais bonita. Esta Catedral é a mais tradicional da cidade e é muito procurada para a realização de casamentos ( é muito difícil conseguir data para a realização de casamentos devido a esta alta procura).

Morro Do Cuscuzeiro

Reviewed By margarete p - Sao Paulo, SP

This Morro do Cuscuzeiro is in a private farm, and it costs R$ 8,00 to spend all time you want there. There is a large place for camping, bathrooms, parking place and two main trails. One of them takes you to the Morro do Cuscuzeiro, an exciting climbing! I found it hard for children. This trail in fact takes you to the base of that rock you see on photos, climbing to the very top is just for climbers. But from that base you can have a very beautiful view of the city and surrounds! It´s worthwhile!
The other trail takes you to a small pool. Unfortunately I couldn´t reach it, because there was cattle in the middle of the trail, and of course I was afraid! I think they should prevent them to be there... I lost this opportunity...
They offer horse riding, and soon they will open a small water park there too.
It´s easy to arrive to this farm, around 2km from the city.

Fazenda Santa Maria do Monjolinho

Reviewed By Mariliava - Araraquara, SP

Great place to spend a weekend afternoon. If you arrive around noon the restaurant is open with typical farm food. Then from 12h to 17h it is possible to visit the house/palace of the farm. It is possible to walk around where the slaves were kept and where coffe was treated after harvest. During the week it is also possible to visit, but you would have to book in advance. It is accessible only by car, and part of the road is not paved, around 20 min from the city.

Museu Da Ciencia De Sao Carlos Prof. Mario Tolentino

Reviewed By Marcelo C - Sao Paulo, SP

O Museu, localizado no centro da cidade, tem como principal objetivo ampliar o horizonte da ciência (principalmente a física) para um âmbito prático. Com vários experimentos, é possível entender os mais variados conceitos da Física de uma forma lúdica e educativa. As educadoras são atenciosas e o local é acessível tanto para o público cego quanto para o público surdo, pois conta com placas em Braille e videoguia. Além disso, apresenta uma exposição de Paleontologia com fósseis em um ambiente temático. Ótima atividade para se fazer com a família!
