Therapeutic water, rapids and craftsmanship

Acknowledged for the therapeutic properties of the water at the Balneário Municipal Mizael Marques Sobrinho (City Bathhouse) since the 19th century, Águas de Santa Bárbara lies on the banks of the Pardo River. Many tourists visit the town after alternative treatments for digestive, liver and intestine disorders. 

The Casa do Artesão (House of the Artisan) was created in 2003 and became an important reference to promote the town’s handicraft. It offers countless options of articles: wooden pieces, oil on canvas, embroidery, knitting, candles and handmade soaps, among others.

Thrilling adventures for tourists of all ages include going down the Pardo River rapids, by rafting or acqua-riding.
