The Camino Real
Barichara is known for its beautifully preserved colonial architecture and cobblestone streets. The town is popular with tourists so it has many restaurants for tourists, however it's better to find the teijo court, grab a couple of beers and try the local bar snack - Hormigas Culonas (you can buy packets of them in any shop).
After a few rounds of teijo you can wander the historic streets of Barichara.

The sign at the start of the trail: it tells the story of Geo van Langueke who restored the trail in the 1800s
The Camino itself is a fairly rough stone track that heads down the hill to the road.Once it crosses the road, it flattens out and travels through farmland.
