A MIX OF HISTORY AND NATURAL BEAUTY
In the middle of the Sincorá Range, at an average altitude of 1000 meters, (3,280 feet) and with a pleasant mountain climate, the town of Mucugê has natural beauty, history, and a beautiful, unique culture. Memories of a glorious past can be seen in the façades of the buildings and colonial houses all of which are preserved and make up part of the National Historical Heritage. Colorful and well-kept gardens compliment the beauty of the preserved colonial architecture of the 19th century. A calendar full of cultural and religious events help maintain the history and traditions that attract people from all around Brazil and the world.
The Mucugê National Park maintains and houses the Sempre Viva Flower Project, which is the most visited attraction of the city along with the Working Prospectors Museum and some natural attractions. The Project is the major biological research center in the Chapada Diamantina and also serves as a recreation area for locals and tourists alike. Among the natural attractions found in the Project are the Tiburtino Waterfall and Piabinha Waterfall. A must!
Half of Mucugê’s municipality area is inside the Chapada Diamantina National Park and includes the Paty Valley, which is considered Brazil’s most beautiful hike and one of the world’s best. This long hike should be done only with the help of a qualified, experienced guide. The landscapes are incredible, but there are dangers.
