The landscapes of the region are very beautiful, with rock formations, fields and farms (cattle raising and grains). The park has three main attractions:
Stop for lunch at Panoramico Restaurante (near the park).
Transfer to Castrolanda, a Dutch settlement founded 1951. The mill is part of the “Immigration Memorial”, built 2001 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the settlement. The mill can be visited from Friday to Sunday.
Transfer to the town of Carambeí, the first Dutch settlement in the region, founded 1912. The first families settled in the farm Carambehy in order to deliver milk and food to the railroad workers. They founded the cooperative Batavo. The area is today with Castrolanda the greatest milk producer in Brazil.

In the park entrance you will find the “Kaffiehuis”, a charming café with delicious cakes and other Dutch specialties.
