This picturesque old mining town is the prettiest place to stay whilst in Chapada Diamantina and is a great base for exploring the surrounding national park. There are an abundance of excellent walks that start and finish in Lencois, which lead you past waterfalls, caves, rivers and natural waterslides. The scenery around the town is absolutely stunning and is matched by the lovely colourful buildings and old cobbled streets in the centre itself.
