Monte Verde

4.1

Brazilian Switzerland

Perched high up in the Mantiqueira Mountains at 1,550 m (5,085 ft) above sea level, the small town of Monte Verde attracts visitors looking to escape Brazil's tropical heat. With temperatures dropping as low as -10 C (14 F), the mountain town has earned the reputation of being "a little slice of the Swiss Alps" in Brazil. The town of about 5,000 people has retained its traditional mountain architecture, displaying plenty of colorful, wooden houses with sharply peaked roofs. Surrounded by dense forests, nature does justice to the town's name, literally "Green Mountain" in English. Monte Verde is in State of Minas Gerais (MG). Use our Brazil trip planner to arrange your visit to Monte Verde and any other destinations in Brazil that take your fancy.
