Welcome to Teresópolis

Today the city’s principal attraction is the surrounding landscape and its natural treasures, most notably Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos, whose trails, waterfalls and mountain peaks beckon just 6km south of the city center. The Dedo de Deus (God’s Finger) is the town symbol, a dramatic rock spire visible from all over town.

Teresópolis's Comary neighborhood has long been the training base of Brazil’s national football squad; you can still occasionally catch a glimpse of the team practicing here in town.
