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. Plan your holiday in Monte Verde and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Brazil day trip planning app.
