I drove through this area, of the Sta Catarina Sierra, the drive downhill is amazing, and the views are magnificent, just the day I visited was so cloudy, that only when I started my drive downhill I saw the views....but worth doing the drive

The most beautiful view I have ever seen. Looking at these pictures, they are not justifiable as the real experience is indescribable. I recommend everyone to see this. It is a very long drive, but the most amusing drive you'll probably ever have. Lots of areas on the way up to pull over and spend some time taking pictures.

One of the best roads to ride in a motorcycle or any other vehicle, for the matter. At day or at night, the road is beautiful, located in one of the most magnificent landscape in South Brazil.

Impressive road climbing the side of the mountain with many switchbacks and fantastic vistas. Roadside rivutes and small waterfalls provide variety and scenic enhancement. A restaurant and a tourist shop are along the route, and an overlook with shops and restaurant at the summit.

A breathtaking view on a clear day, a chilly afternoon wind all year round and a feeling of freedom taking us as we watch the cars coming uphill along Serra do Rio do Rastro, one of the curviest road in the world. Simply amazing! You Don't Want to Miss It.

To drive over this road is nothing more then spectacular. We drove it two times in two days, because the first day it was all clouded. The next day it was completely clear and we had a wonderful view over the sharp curves and narrow roads. Even though the road is small, there are still a lot of trucks using... More

If you take the road in a day with low clouds (happens a lot), it's still a nice little trip. But on a clear day, you're able to see it all from above, and to make stops to take pictures frequently (in the winter, of the frozen waterfalls).
