Dear All,

I would like to invite you to our first Outdoor activity that will be an Abseiling (Rapel) at the Old quarry of Rio Grande da Serra, in Grande ABC area at 55km south of São Paulo capital.
Abseiling is a safe and sensational activity when organized and managed by professionals, which is our case. We will have a very good monitor : Gui. He and his team will take care of us all along the activity.

The Old quarry of Rio Grande da Serra offers a glaring place for this activity. It will be held vertically from the top of a 38m high rock, which has a small horizontal platform 6m below the start of the descent.

After the activity, we will have lunch at Vila de Paranapiaçaba, located 19kms away on Santo André municipality. In the middle of Alto da Serra do Mar, Vila de Paranapiaçaba is a natural, historical and architectural place as it emerged in the 19th century due to the construction of the SPR railway, to transport the coffee ("Ouro Preto") to the Port of Santos, through the largest funicular system in the world at the time. The Funicular Museum is worth a visit…
