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).
I have visited this place at the occasion of the XXXV Encontro Nacional de Física da Matéria Condensada.
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 waters — Marie 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 , 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.
