It's the gateway to the city. Many people stop and take pictures. There isn't anything else to do there.

I won't consider this as an attraction, it is just the city entrance beautifully constructed that you will end up seeing any way when going to Campos.

This portal has similarities with European (German and Swiss perhaps) architecture and aesthetic. For this reason, I consider it quite eye-catching and distinguishing. It's a great sight for introducing our staying in Campos do Jordão and it's possible to get awesome pictures :)

This door is big and makes you feel that you enter in a special city. It is nice but nothing special. Anyway, you cross it to enter the city.
