The South Sights

Parque Estadual de Vila Velha

Updated 07/15/2013

Fodor's Review

The 22 towering rock formations of the 7,670-acre Vila Velha State Park, 97 km (60 miles) northwest of Curitiba, stand in sharp contrast to the green rolling hills of the Campos Gerais, Paraná's high plains. Three hundred million years of rain and wind have carved these sandstone formations, whose names—the Lion, the Cup, the Mushroom, the Sphinx—reflect their shapes. After watching a 10-minute video about the geology and environment of the area at the visitor center, you're led to the attractions on guided minibus tours.
