Protected Landscape Area of the Baía de São Lourenço


During the descent by the slope of the bay, as by the viewpoint of the Espigão, is visible one of the largest and richest local landscape - the terraced vineyards arranged in a natural amphitheater. Vineyards traditionally cultivated of smell grapes, these were collected in pastel baskets and carried in shoulder, by human force through the slope, for later making the traditional Smell Wine and Sweet Wine, which are still the delight of the youngest.

In the southeastern limit of this Protected Area (area 0,60 km2), is the Ponta Negra where you can see examples of Pillow Lava (submarine eruptive formation) and a Fossiliferous Field.
