"I finally got to "Pedra Azul" (Blue Stone)! "  

Starting from Vitória, the main access is by BR-262, that connects the capital to "Belo Horizonte". The cities of Domingos Martins and "Venda Nova do Imigrante" and the Blue Stone State Park are very close to the highway.   


"That Blue Stone is really blue! "  

The park was founded in 1992 and the trip must be accompanied by guides. The first part of the trail has about 500 meters of extension.   


"At the end of the trail they are natural swimming pools."   

On the trail it is possible to see monkeys, toucans and a legend tells that even jaguars can be seen. If you go until the end of the trail, you will find natural swimming pools formed by an East inside of the rocks.  


"I drank some really clean water... "   

To get to it, it is necessary to climb a passage, with inclination of 45 degrees, of 95 meters, holding on a rope.   


"São Floriano's Waterfall is great! "  

The blue Stone has grayish color and it is covered by algae and mushrooms, for that, depending on the angle that the sun shines on the stone, it gets greenish or blued. It is a beautiful show. 

 " It is possible to see some very crazy monkeys."
