Tourist attractions and activities

Águas de Lindoia is best known for its mineral water springs, first discovered by a pair of Italian immigrants, brothers Henrique and Francisco Tozzi, in the 1900s. Accounts of apparently miraculous cures grew, attracting much attention-- rumor has it that even Madame Curie visited the springs to investigate. A town coalesced around the springs, becoming an official city in 1938. These days, the springs remain the primary touristic appeal of the city, although the surrounding area has a growing selection of eco-tourism activities on offer as well.
