Águas de Lindóia

Águas de Lindóia is a Brazilian city in the state of Sao Paulo. It is a thermal water city, with locally famous mineral water springs, first discovered by a pair of Italian immigrants (the Tosi brothers).

O que fazer em Águas de Lindóia

It's a small place cast in stunning surroundings. Unfortunately I didn't have much option or freedom to wander farther than within the city. Here's a small list:

  • Thermal watersMarie Curie came here for that.
  • Igreja Nossa Senhora das Graças.
  • Cristo — right in the middle of the city, with nice views. The Christ statue itself is rather miserable.
  • Praça Adhemar de Barros — Favourite of [1], but it is nothing special, only a park. The city is so tiny you will pass by anyway and the nice atmosphere doesn't make it a place to avoid. The red waters give it a special little touch.
