Teresopolis is a city in Rio de Janeiro (state). It is one of the most charming cities in the region, with relatively cold weather and beautiful mountains.

God's finger peak in Teresopolis

Some miles from Petrópolis, the town of Teresópolis also delights in an agreeable climate at 900 meters above sea level. In the distance are the bay of Guanabara and the spectacular surroundings of this town. Less rich than her cousin Petrópolis, Teresópolis is the ideal point of departure for the magnificent National Park of Serra dos Orgãos with peaks named evocatively: Dedo de Deus (God’s finger: el. 1692 m.a.s.l.), Nariz do Frade (the Monk’s Nose: el. 1980 m.a.s.l.) or even Pedra do Sino (The bells’ stone: el. 2263 m.a.s.l.). The beauty of the park resides in the strange shapes of these granite formations. One of the most beautiful walks in Brazil is the one linking Teresópolis to Petropolis (3 days- including return trip to Rio-3 hours offers by the travel agency Terra Brazil [1]), traversing through some of the astonishing scenery of a country that conjures up images of beaches and sweaty samba. In this seldom-visited region the history of the emperors has nevertheless left its indelible sacred mark.
