Amparo

Ecoturismo Rural Saúde Gastronomia Cultural

Historic buildings, coffee farms and medicinal water

The town is home to a superb cultural and historical heritage that dates back to the peak of the Brazilian coffee cycle, during 19th and 20th centuries. This legacy can be seen in historical monuments, old row houses, manors, hospitals, churches, schools and old farms.

A walk about the town’s cobblestoned streets takes the tourists to its historic center, with its well preserved houses and small churches, in addition to the old train station of the Mogiana Railway Company. 

Amparo was the first town to be awarded the title of thermal destination, due to its pleasant weather and its medicinal water. The town also has several farms that offer rural tourism in bucolic mountainous settings.
