Welcome to São Thomé das Letras

The word 'Letras' in São Thomé’s name refers to the mysterious inscriptions found in local caverns such as Carimbado and Chico Taquara (both 3km outside town) and the Gruta de São Thomé, a small cave in the heart of town. Other attractions include the nearby waterfalls Euboise (3km), Prefeitura (7km) and Véu de Noiva (12km) and the town’s strikingly rough-hewn buildings, made from slabs of locally quarried quartzite.
