Located in the village of São Gonçalo do Rio das Pedras, in the interior of the state of Minas Gerais, the Pousada do Capão is a veritable sanctuary that gives new meaning to an age-old tradition of Mineiran hospitality.
Your hosts, Marcia Barbosa and Peter Edwards, who met as pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago, are dedicated to welcoming travelers of the Estrada Real, offering them a restful (and delicious) getaway in a setting of incredible natural beauty.
Contemplate the glorious sunsets. Listen to a chorus of birdsongs. Savor traditional delicacies. Cleanse your soul in Rapadura Falls. Chat with the local personalities. Hike up Lightening Mountain. Celebrate with the townsfolk in a colorful festival.
Sip homemade liqueur. Inhale the perfume of the cerrado. Visit the 18th century churches. Wade in the Rio das Pedras. Rediscover forgotten trails. Go back in time.
When you are looking for peace and relaxation, all roads lead to the Pousada do Capão.
