Monte Mor Vacations
Monte Mor is near a range of colorful Campinas’s well-known sights. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s list is the wonderful Luiz Narezzi Square and the much-loved Jaragua Shopping Center. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit the Prudente de Moraes Square and the Rui Barbosa Square.
Visitors to Monte Mor, interested in finding out what makes the area tick, should head to the nearby museums and theaters. Walk through the exhibits and savor the quiet of the Museum of Natural History, Planetarium and the Museum of Image and Sound. For a great night out, head to the Castro Mendes Theater and the Paulinia Municipal Theater in Paulinia, one of the region’s most popular live concert venues. Head to the Museum of Contemporary Art, to get your fill of art.
If the sun is shining, follow the locals and make the most of the nearby green spaces. To catch a glimpse of the local wilderness drive out to Jequitibas Forest. See if you can spot some of the area’s special birdlife with a drive to a lake in the area like Taquaral Lake.
If you have time in and around Monte Mor, treat yourself with a visit to Castle Tower and the Metropolitan Cathedral of Campinas. The Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel offers travellers to Campinas the opportunity to better understand the part religion has played in the area.
Take time out from the sights and play a game of golf at the Clube de Golfe de Campinas in Sumare.
If you are looking to give your credit card a workout, browse Municipal Market and the Campinas Shopping Center.
Monte Mor is a place steeped in sporting history. Spend an afternoon at nearby Moises Lucarelli Stadium, home to the Red Bull Brazil soccer team in summer and the Associação Atlética Ponte Preta. After the game, follow the throngs of local sports obsessives to the nearby pubs to relive the match’s greatest moments.
When it’s time to slow down after a day spent exploring the delights of Monte Mor, check in to one of the many local short and long stay accommodation options. The TRYP Campinas Hotel, the Royal Palm Tower and the Mercure Campinas Hotel are just three of the many great places to stay around here.
