Proposal
 
1 Day - Natal / Ingá / Cariri

Lunch in Campina Grande and continuation to Cariri Paraibano.
At Sítio do Bravo you will visit granite hills decorated with small lakes and large boulders. Prehistoric man and huge mammals - such as mastodons and saber-toothed tigers - inhabited the area, leaving enigmatic relics of their passage, such as rock art, flint tools and fossilized bones.
You will then proceed to Pai Mateus Ranch to relax in the swimming pool or firewood sauna.
