  • It's worth giving a stop and making the visitation. It does not arouse so much interest of tourists, but on the way to the largest cashew tree in the world, it becomes convenient to meet.

  • Nothing much. There's nobody to drive or explain anything. Half-abandoned. Not worth the visit. I do not recommend
