Rota do Sol cuts the journey between Litoral and Serra by more than 100km and is yet another postcard from Rio Grande Sul! An invitation to Environmental Tourism 😉

Where does Rota do Sol begin and where does it end?

Many people have no idea of its extension and are terrified when they discover that it has 737 kilometers.

That's right!
Its ends are in Terra de Areia and it goes to the city of São Borja.

Where is the “I love the Serra Gaúcha” lookout?

This is another question that many don't know the answer to.

This is because the lookout is right at the beginning of the mountain starting in (Terra de Areia), located next to the Mirador Restaurante e Café on RS 486, more or less at km 4 in Itati.
