Vila Velha Park Tours

Established in 1953, the diverse landscapes of Vila Velha State Park have attracted travelers in search of a quiet, picturesque respite from urban Rio since its inception. Towering sandstone formations that have been carved away by volcanic eruptions, wind and glaciers over the course of some 6,000 years, are just part of what gives this State Heritage site its unique appeal. 

Travelers can wander scenic trails through some of the park’s most iconic sandstones like the camel, sphinx and the well-known goblet. Popular Furnas—deep turquoise water holes formed by collapsed sandstone, are another popular feature of Vila Velha. Hell’s Cauldrons, home to two of these Furnas—is one of the park’s main attractions. Nearby Golden Pond, known for casting a yellow hue when hit by the sun, is another popular stop for visitors to the park.

Practical Info

The park is located about 55 miles from Curitiba and is an easy day trip from the city. It is open every day but Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
