Estrada Real

4.3
Linking many of the important historic towns in Southern Brazil, Estrada Real remains one of the country's top tourist routes, attracting travelers in search of typical Brazilian traditions, history, and food. Stretching across 1,630 km (1,013 mi), the Royal Road thrived in the 17th and 18th centuries during the gold rush. A glimpse of the wealth gold had brought to the region can be seen in the colonial-era mansions and grand cathedrals of Sao Joao del Rei, once a gold mining settlement, as well as in the "imperial city" of Petropolis, once the summer getaway of Brazilian emperors. Travelers in pursuit of outdoor action should visit Cunha during their Estrada Real tour. This city of great cultural heritage also serves as a gateway to its ecologically rich surrounds, dotted with waterfalls and other pristine natural features.
