For those who enjoy walks in nature, the city of Canindé do São Francisco, which is about 207 km from Aracaju, is a great option. In it, you can see and enjoy the natural beauty of the Vale dos Mestres, where there are many options of hiking trails, natural landscapes, and archaeological sites. In the midst of Caatinga (exclusively Brazilian biome of semi-arid climate and shallow and stony soil, composed of various rock types) you can observe species of flora from the country, such as mandacarus and bromeliads.
