Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade
The first capital of Mato Grosso, the small village of Vila Bela da SantissímaTrindade is one of the most interesting touristic sites in Mato Grosso for visitors who are interested in culture and history. At the heart of Vila Bela, there are the ruins of a cathedral dated from the colonial period, which was built by slaves. The local people still keep the traditions of the slaves from that time. One of its main cultural events is the Dança do Congo, performed at the ancient ruins of the former cathedral. The town serves as a hub for trips to the Amazon forest along the upper Guaporé river and the nearby nature reserve of Parque Estadual da Serra de Ricardo Franco. One of the park’s main attractions is the Namorados’s Waterfall. There you can go hiking on safety trails following the creeks which begin in a crystal clear lake. The Ricardo Franco State Park is located on the left border of the Guaporé River. This region is ideal for plenty of adventure sports, such as rappelling, trekking and amazing hikings next to the Amazon forest.
