Canela is a realtive young Town in its own rights, which where granted 1945
at first a working class community, forestry the main employment. soon there was not much to cut anymore, as everywhere else in the world..reforesting started soon after restoring what otherwise would have become a desert. Reflorestamento in the mid sixties had become a magic word and task in the south of Brasil.
Canela and Gramado went for it and started a very unique tourist industry, preserving and restoring nature, as well finding new job opportunities for the whole area.
in my transport tip you can find Canelas official webpage, yes its only in portugues, but many pics will show the beautiful area, accommodations and more, have a look

enlarge the map and see how to get there
just 100km from Porto Alegre, realy a wonderful scenic drive through the Serra Geral around 900m above sealevel
