When Atlantic Forest meets Cerrado and Caatinga. With its rocky formations and altitudes that reach around 1400 m, it rises as an important wall that separates the São Francisco Valley in Bahia. A veritable humid and green oasis in the heart of an arid landscape.
Part of a mountain range that extends from Minas Gerais to Bahia, the Chapada Diamantina National Park is inserted in the Caatinga and Atlantic Forest Biosphere Reserves. Fields, forests, wetlands, canyons, caves, rivers, waterfalls and historical sites. Everything can be seen there in its most exuberant form.
In the past many people were attracted to the region by gold and diamond mines, leading to great occupation and devastation of the natural environment. The establishment of protected areas helped to preserve local biodiversity, as well as to generate income through tourism for local communities, which include quilombola remnants.
