Quaint hills, a river dam and historic estates
The town is bathed by the Jaguary lake and offers boat rides and waterside contemplation by the Taboão lake, the town’s most famous spot. On weekends, a handicraft fair is held by the lake.
Its hilly landscape invites tourists to go hike over Montanha Leite Sol and Morro do Guaripocaba, for beautiful sightseeing.
The heritage of the coffee tycoons is still alive thanks to the listed manors and historic buildings that make historic and cultural tourism a must here. Bragança is known as the Poetry City, due to all its gardens, plazas and attractions that are an invitation to a weekend in São Paulo state.
