The Community

Quilombo da Fazenda is located on the north coast of São Paulo, in one of the most preserved areas of Atlantic Forest in the state: Mata Atlântica the Parque Estadual Serra do Mar 

There are approximately 72 families in the community, making a living from activities such as handicrafts and the community-based tourism

This territory is home to waterfalls, trails, stories and, above all, the resistance of a forest and a people fighting against exploitation. 


Quilombos are territories that are home to shared experiences and practices of black people that help preserve and affirm their ways of life. 

They are the result of the centenary struggle of black people for freedom to express their cultures, religions and thoughts.

Quilombos are places of resistance, ancestry, preservation and legacy
