|The City of Cachoeira
We visited Cachoeira on Aug 15 which is also the Feast of the Assumption in order to see the procession of Nossa Senhora do Boa Morte (Our Lady of the Good Death). This is an organization of women over the age of 40 in veneration of Mary. They carry out good works around the area. The procession is a big draw and the street was very crowded outside the chapel.

Since this is such an important feast day for Cachoeira, the whole town comes out to party
For lunch we crossed the Paraguaçu River to the town of Sâo Felix and climbed the hill to the Fazenda Santa Cruz. This old estate and farm has been turned into a restaurant and pousada. It sits overlooking the towns of Cachoeira and Sâo Felix. The building beautiful and it has fantastic chairs that have been carved in one piece out of wood.
