Pedra Balao Reviews
A vista é linda de cima da pedra! É de fácil acesso, inclusive para crianças (com auxílio, claro), e próximo ao local tem uma lanchonete com um pastel delicioso more »The view is beautiful from the top of the stone! It is easy to access, including for children (with assistance, of course), and close to the venue has a snack bar with a delicious pastel
O local nao tem nada demais. Tem uma lojinha bem cara por sinal com lembrancinhas. Local bom para tirar fotos. Nao consegui subir na pedra, pois tinha chovido no dia e estava escorregadio. Ir de tenis... more »There's nothing wrong with the place. There's a pretty expensive little shop on the side with souvenirs. Good place to take pictures. I couldn't get up on the rock because it had rained on the day and it was slippery. Go tennis. When I went, I had a lot of bikers climbing the tracks.
