With the help of a map and starting from Águas da Prata, a route was imagined to arrive in Aparecida privileging the most logical route and that would attend the peregrine profile, without political interference.
The Path of Faith was inaugurated on February 11, 2003 in the city of Águas da Prata / SP. Its layout can always be altered, aiming to add other cities.
Currently in 2016, the Route is composed of approximately 970 km, of which approximately 500 km cross the Mantiqueira Mountains by dirt road, tracks, woods and asphalt, providing moments of reflection and faith, physical and psychological health and integration of man with the nature.
Always following the yellow arrows, the pilgrim reinforces his faith by observing the privileged nature, overcoming the difficulties of the Path, which is the synthesis of life itself.
He learns that the little he needs fits in his backpack and strips himself of the superfluous. Exercising the ability to be humble, you will understand the simplicity of inns and meals. At each stop, it you will be contributing to the economic and social development of small cities and fostering the cultural integration of its inhabitants with pilgrims from all regions of Brazil and from different parts of the world.
