Departure to the small town of Carambeí, the first Dutch colony in the region, founded in 1912. The first families settled on the then ‘Carambehy’ farm to supply milk and food o the workforces that labored on the construction of the railway. They founded the Batavo Cooperativeand today, with Castrolanda, make up the largest dairy pole in the country. Visit to the beautiful Carambeí Historical Park, which reproduces the buildings and portrays the way of life of the first Dutch who arrived in the region.
