What to expect at Faja dos Padres
After paying the entrance fee you enter the cable car cabin which takes you down a 300 meters high cliff to the entrance of the garden. Once you’ve arrived at the entrance of the garden, you will first walk through the banana tree plantation, several different crops and fruittrees.
The production of the Faja dos Padres biological farm is since 2008 certified with the label of organic farming. You can see here a large variety of agriculture because the microclimate favours the growth of several subtropical species. The bio eco organic farm consists of more than 20 different kinds of fruits and grapevines. A few examples are mangoes, avocados, banana and papaya. But you will also find figs, pitanga, passion fruit, pineapple and the vineyard. All these tropical species fill the garden with color and diversity.
It is, of course, not allowed to pick the fruits. If you want to taste the fruits you can book the guided tour with fruit tasting, or have an organic lunch in the restaurant of Faja dos Padres.
