Teresopolis is a city in Rio de Janeiro (state), at 900 meters above sea level. It is one of the most charming cities in the region, with relatively cold weather and beautiful mountains.

God's finger peak in Teresopolis


Some miles from Petrópolis, the town of Teresópolis also delights in an agreeable climate. In the distance are the bay of Guanabara and the spectacular surroundings of this town. Less rich than her cousin Petrópolis, Teresópolis is the ideal point of departure for the magnificent Serra dos Orgãos National Park. In this seldom-visited region the history of the emperors has nevertheless left its indelible sacred mark.
