This canyon is bigger the Itaimbezinho, and the best part is that it's free for visitation. You would be able to take amazing pictures and enjoy a great view. Really recommend it.

The weather conditions must be good and clean air for the sight seeing. 1,5km walk to reach the top of the mountain is worth the effort.
