Cordisburgo
The big attraction in Cordisburgo is Gruta do Maquiné, which received the
three star rating, the highest of its kind in the world. The Danish scientist
Peter W. Lund found the cave in 1835.
The city is also known as the birthplace of the writer João Guimarães Rosa,
author of masterpieces such as Sagarana and Grande Sertão: Veredas. The
tribute is the Guimarães Rosa House Museum.
"He knew - for it anyone had chance - that
Cordisburgo was the most beautiful place due to air
and sky, and the arrangement that God fancied in its
hills and its plains; therefore, there is called Vista
Alegre ... The sky had no end, the hills stretched, under
the beautiful blue and ocean-ish big clouds."
Guimarães Rosa

Gruta do Maquiné was formed by the action of water on limestone.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock that through the millennial action of
water, forms underground spaces known as grottos, caves or limpets.
In these spaces happens teh formation of mineral deposits, especially
calcite, which is a calcium carbonate. Calcite is usually white or
transparent, having different colors and shades by the presence of
impurities and other minerals.
These mineral deposits are called speleothems, which are basically mineral
ornaments found in the underground environment. The main speleothems
are stalactites (found on the ceiling), stalagmites (found on the floor),
columns (where stalactites meet with stalagmites), curtains, runoff,
travertine dams, etc..
