The Vale do Capão
The Capão Valley give us the typical natural beauty characteristic of the region of Chapada Diamantina, such as abundant waters, delicate and beautiful flowers, crystals and stones, wild animals, beautiful birds and unusual insects.
The local culture has very interesting folkloric aspects, such as "folias de ternos de reis" - something like the King's fun groups, processions to ask for the rain, or caruru at the San Cosme and Damião day. In Carnival, the fanfare band of the local circus take the streets, bringing joy and lots of fun, specially for the kids.
Also, in Capão, you can see circus and capoeira shows, and several street artists singing and dancing, enchanting the sundays in the village.
The local handcraft fair is rich and varied. In the village you will find clothes, accessories, jewelry, semi-jewelsy, pillows and puppets, and several souvenirs.
The cuisine is varied and tasty, whether served in inns and restaurants or in the tents of the village. The night in the village is lively with visiors and natives of Capão gathering and have fun.
Capão hosts events that attract hundreds of people from the whole country and planet. There have already been festivals here: Jazz, Blues, and Reggae, featuring great names in Brazilian and international popular music.
This very special region attracts people interested in self-knowledge, spirituality, and willing to build a society with better quality of life, honoring the wisdom of the ancestors and natives of the Earth and, at the same time, experiencing new ways of selfcare, so you will find here many therapies and alternative treatments.
The local people is lovely and cheerful.
Being in Capão is a unique experience, rich and unforgettable.
