More Info/h4>

It was originated by basalto spills during Mesozoic Era, 136 million years ago. The rocky area formed there is a hill, which is isolated on the landscape, surrounding almost all the area of Rio das Antas.

The name Morro dos Baianos was given because this place was inhabited by African American, called baianos by Italian descendants. In the place there are traces of an old cemetery of this comunnity and ruins of its houses. The plateau of the hill has 70 hectares of native wood and you must have a guide to go through it. You can find belvederes with wonderful views.
