The monoliths in Quixadá The monoliths of Quixadá are among the oldest mountains on Earth, created more than 600 million years ago during the Precambrian era.

The monoliths stand out in the semiarid region of northeastern Brazil (known as Sertão).

Quixadá´s "rock islands" are stunning geographic formations, composed of stand alone huge pieces of one rock. Some of the monoliths resembles familiar forms, like the “Galinha Choca” (the broody hen).

Aside from the monoliths, one of Quixadá biggest attractions is the “Açude do Cedro”, the oldest dam in Brazil, constructed more than one hundred years ago.

The area is fantastic for ecotourism activities such as bird watching and extreme sports such as paragliding, hang-gliding and abseiling.
