Campos Novos

Known as the granary of the state, due to its large grain production, Campos Novos offers good tourist attractions. The hot springs of the Termas Leonense (Leonense Spa) are ideal for those who want to relax and enjoy good times with the family. There are also rural properties where you can go horseback riding, hike trails or take a boat ride. The festivals that celebrate the gaucho pioneers’ traditions, such as Expocampos, are the highlights of the town. The Romaria de Nossa Senhora Aparecida (Pilgrimage of Our Lady Aparecida) is another highlight of Campos Novos.
