We were very poorly attended at the reception and during the tour. Unprepared and disorganized employees, without clear commands and instructions.

First of all, forget those amazingly organized museums or historic buildings in most developed countries - with extensive signage, guides or guide books in several languages, labels at every exhibit detailing all objects and sights. In that aspect, this is a bit of a rough-shod jumbling of historic items in a really well-preserved 200-year old farm. On the other hand, if you are charmed by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic guides and cooks, you will plunge into a close as possible feeling of being owners of a centuries-old property in the interior of the country where the Royal Road reached from the port of Paraty in Rio de Janeiro.

And you will be just astounded by the food that is served - it's called Café Sertanejo, which not unlike the Café Colonial in the South of Brazil is an amount and quality of food that even 3 hungry guys my size would have trouble eating all. Unlike the Colonial though, this brunch from the countryside is as Brazilian as food gets - no "kuchen", but broas, bolos and other pastry based less on wheat, more on manioc and sugar cane. And my wife, who often avoids eating pork or chicken outside our home, was won over by the homemade sausage and chicken balls served.

We barely had anything to eat that evening in the hotel.

By the way, the café sertanejo can be organized to be eaten at any time after the tour - we actually relaxed a bit in some hammocks until we were hungry enough and closer to lunch time (we arrived at 9:30 and the tour takes about 1 hour, if you ask enough questions and stop at each point long enough).

Not sure I praised this location enough in this evaluation. If you are staying in Pirenópolis for more than 1 day, you must absolutely visit this place which is on the road to Anápolis less than 20 miles from historic downtown, there's really no way to miss it.

There's evidently always room for improvement: they could check out how Vagafogo has its wares - like molasses - organized for sale. There's really not much effort in showing off the products, making them easily available for tasting and though the young lady at the gateway was nice enough, she could have been just a little more enthusiastic about pointing out the products.

Very interesting and well maintained fazenda.
Get a historic tour with the guide to understand how farming life did look like years ago in this part of the country and how slaves did develop the economy of Goias.
Very friendly staff. They speak English.

This is really a special place to visit, you can buy a ticket just to be shown around by a guide and learn a lot about the farm's history, or to include the most extensive brunch you've ever had, with many local dishes. In both cases you can stay around and enjoy this big historical farm the whole day and meet the various animals.

Fazenda Babilonia is a must see if you are looking to some Brazilian history lessons on site! It is one of the oldest sugar cane farm in the central east of Brazil. Its construction and size are amazing, all done in a impressive wood work with almost no nails. It is situated on the old part of the golden rush in Brazil. The oners (in its fifth generation) are amazingly knowleged in its family history. Besides all that the breakfast/brunch is amazing as well, with all traditional food, very well served and delicious.

We enjoyed the whole experience at Fazenda Babilonia. The history was told to us in slow Portuguese (our Portuguese isn't so good, but we understood), then we were served the buffet brunch. A menú was provided in English to explain different dishes, but the owner was also very good with pointing things out to us. The food was plentiful and really yummy, and more than that, it was interesting. I recommend a visit here.

This farm was carefully preserved to tell a part of Brazil's history. The food was great and also a history lesson in itself! We were on vacation and loved every bite!

If you're looking foward to experience the most intense gastronomic trip to Goias' best typical culinary, Fazenda Babilonia is the right place to go. The food comes with the history's place and is completely fresh! Later you can rest somewhere nearby, place's always fresh.

You're not gonna regret!
