The pousada is located in Igatu, which is about 1.5-2 hrs drive from Lençóis. Is is a great place to stop when visiting the blue lakes and other waterfalls located in the south of the chapada, rather than returning to Lençóis.
Nestled in the Sierra Sincorá – this fantastic village of stone, built many years ago by those in search of diamonds, is often called the Machu Picchu of Brazil. A quaint little village, Igatu is perfect for those seeking a magical experience in Chapada Diamantina, and is in an excellent location to enjoy all the activities and beautiful scenery.
The village is protected by the Historical and Artistic Heritage of Brazil and has six hotels and seven restaurants. The cliffs also attract climbing enthusiasts!
Pousada Flor de Açucena is located at the entrance of the village. There are 15 rooms of various sizes to accommodate couples, families and even large groups. The inn is fully integrated into its natural surroundings, with incredible views. They have natural pools and gardens full of orchids and other local flowers – it really is a pure oasis.
This is one of the most beautiful places I have seen in Brazil, I discovered it by chance and ended up staying a lot longer than planned. There are many waterfalls nearby and this is the place to go if you’re into climbing.
