Guest Reviews

The minute you arrive you step into a beautiful, serene and inviting place. The entire vibe is relaxing and comfortable. The Inn Keepers are amazing! The food and drinks that are served are some of the best I've had. We spent our days visiting nearby towns and walking through pristine rivers and waterfalls. Evenings spent talking with other guests, listening to music and night time star gazing. This place is truly wonderful ... I'd go back in a heartbeat!


São Gonçalo do Rio das Pedras, where Pousada do Capão is located, is a peaceful and well-preserved village in northern Minas Gerais (34 km from Diamantina and 30 km from Serro) which still retains much of its 18th century heritage.
