Trails

Trail
“The way you get around the historic center is always special. You can get there either near the entrance of the top slab of D. Luiz Bridge (at the left) or near the lower slab of the same bridge. Normally I do recommend to start on the top. :)”

Trail
“one of the primitive ways to get to the city in the XIII century, and an emergency getaway to escape an attack from the north. For me, it's a quite special way to arrive to the riverside. Remember that the way down it's always easier.”
