Visit: Amantikir Park, Campos Do Jordao, State of Sao PauloThe Serra Escarpada that accompanied the river Paraíba (ugly river in Tupi), where today Campos do Jordão, known by the natives as amantikir, "the mountain that cries", has become Mantiqueira in the pronunciation of Lusitanos. (Understand the origin of the name by knowing the legend of Amantikir). The Amantikir Park, conceived by four lovers of Mantiqueira, intends to pay a sincere homage to the mountain's true values and its exuberant nature, free from fads and foreignisms. Thus, instead of seeking a resemblance to European locations, the park aims to rescue and value the natural and cultural elements of our region. Geographically the Mantiqueira occupies about 25,000 km² and extends through three states, Minas Gerais (75%), Rio de Janeiro (5%) and São Paulo (20%). Following this same condition, the park will be subdivided into three regions: - Mantiqueira Paulista, with representative gardens from several countries, in harmony with the most cosmopolitan and "European" region. - Mantiqueira Fluminense, more Nordic and preservationist, will be represented in the park only by forests and forests. - Mantiqueira Mineira, genuine and traditional, will be represented by Brazilian gardens characteristic of the area inhabited originally by the Tupi Nation.
