The Furnas do Enxofre Visitation Circuit is an infrastructure that was designed in order to regulate the use of this natural monument, allowing, on one hand, the safe access to all who wish to visit it and, on the other, protecting the respective habitats through the use of rustic materials and integrated into the natural characteristics of limitations on caves trails.
