Introducing Natividade

The pleasant little town of Natividade is 230km from Palmas in southeast Tocantins, in a valley beneath the green and wooded Serra Geral. Natividade is Tocantins’ oldest town, founded in 1734. The Portuguese and their African slaves came to the Serra Geral in a minor gold rush in the 1720s, but when the gold gave out they moved down the hill and turned to cattle herding.
