Descalvado in Sao Paulo State!!!

I have written couple posts on the city of Descalvado, with many memories of my travels there. A city in the off the beaten path definition per se of Brazil in general. I happened to come here on business, and made several trips over the last few years, to get to know the town well and still many friends.

Looking at my previous posts on the city realise had some pictures not shown yet, and they should. Therefore, came up with this post of mix in new and old text with new blog pictures as my hommage to Descalvado. Hope you enjoy it as I.

Descalvado is located in the center-east region of the State of São Paulo. Today, Descalvado has several agricultural activities such as sugarcane, citrus, corn, soy, coffee, dairy farming, etc… and industrial activities, highlighting: mineral, homemade sweets, poultry and agricultural implements, metallurgy, poultry and livestock feed, artistic ceramics and others, One of the reasons I came to know this town of by now many nice memories and friends.  A bit of history on the mayor’s office tells us that the town came to be by 1809, and the name come from the Morro de Descalvado or hill of Descalvado.

Some of the touristic things to see here are :

Salto do Pântano or falls as the tourist attraction located 7 km from the city center, The waterfall is 42 meters high, Salto do Gasoso is about 20 meters high and is just a few km from Salto do Pântano. Castelo de Almansa (see post) is a replica of a castle built in the city of Almansa, Spain, this tourist spot is one of the most beautiful and surprising just outside city limits. In addition to the architecture, the building also preserves objects similar to those found in the Spanish castle, such as clocks, sculptures and works of art. Pitangui Rapids are located on the Mogi Guaçu River, the rapids are ideal for canoeing and rafting, also serving for tourists who want to enjoy traditional fishing. Cachoeira dos Índios , this waterfall, approximately 12 meters high, is located in the Butiá district, 6 km away from the city center of Descalvado.

On the way by car from Descalvado to Paulinia (see post) ,we passed by a secondary road where we saw a replica of a Spanish castle of Almansa very nicely done. They have a Facebook page:


The main road and the one I always took to get here is the SP-215 – Rodovia Dep. Vicente Botta , it changes names and number in its long traject to other cities in the region,

I always stayed in town across from the Church Nossa Senhora do Belem (see post). A nice Church with a double tower front and nice decoration but simple inside. Of course, the hotel Descalvado dates from 1888 and the only one in town; simply the best lol! A local joke they put you here as the best when in reality is the only hotel in town! The hotel is very basic but clean and great family service with a good breakfast right in the park city center:downtown!  My home away from home from 2011 to 2018!!! I am already missing it…!
