Bom Jardim da Serra

With just over 4,500 inhabitants, Bom Jardim da Serra is the doorway to the Serra Catarinense. The natural beauty of the region is striking, with its rivers, waterfalls and vertiginous canyons. It is this town that is home to the most famous and beautiful road in Santa Catarina: the Serra do Rio do Rastro. With nearly 12 km of winding curves, the road connects the coastal plain to the mountain region, at an altitude of 1,460 m. On clear days, you can see the ocean, more than 100 km away. Choices for accommodations range from charming inns to traditional farm hotels, and are highly sought after by tourists.
