One of the most sought after points for ecotourism, Lençóis reveals itself amid an exuberant nature and the opulence of hills and mountains, such as the astonishing Pai Inácio Hill, with a panoramic view of the entire region.
Valleys with exuberant bromeliads and orchids add color to the landscape in a beautiful contrast with the typical species of the caatinga. Caves, canyons and several waterfalls, surrounded by the native vegetation of the Atlantic Forest complete the local scenery. Listed by the Historical Heritage, Lençóis preserves the memory of the golden times of mining. Known as the "Capital of the Diamond", the city keeps in its stone streets and colonial mansions part of the Brazilian History.
The Mother Church of Our Lady of the Rosary and the former house of the Sá family – where the city hall is located today – reveal part of the wealth of the traditional families of the region. At that time, there was so much opulence that Lençóis was home to a French Consulate, where there was a commercial warehouse, where the traditional families negotiated directly with Europe.
Main destination of Chapada Diamantina, Lençóis has a complete infrastructure to receive visitors.
