Brazil Tours / History – Sambaquis are the main brazilian prehistorical evidence in the Mata Atlântica region. These shell mounds or middens with ages between 2 and 8 thousand years com were accumulated by prehistorical collectors along Brazil's South and Southeast coast.

These groups used to accumulate the remains of their food (mostly molluscs) together with their artefacts. The sambaquis were also used as tombs.

When you travel to the Lagamar / Lower Ribeira Valley, you will find sambaquis for instance in Iguape, Cananéia, Juréia - Itatins, Ilha do Cardoso State Park or Superagüi National Park – Travel & Tours / Brazil.
