The Serra do Cara├ža Reserves surrounds a monastery located in the southern part of the Espinha├žo mountain range, in the state of Minas Gerais.

It possesses an extremely diversified fauna and flora. At higher altitudes, in the campos rupestres, species endemic to the Espinha├žo Mountains, such as Hyacinth Visorbearer, Rock Tapaculo, Gray-backed Tachuri and Pale-throated Serra-Finch may be found.

At lower altitudes there is humid forest where we can look for many Atlantic forest bird species, such as Surucua Trogon, White-breasted Tapaculo, Crescent-chested Puffbird, White-bibbed and Serra Antbird, Swallow-tailed Cotinga, Red-ruffed Fruitcrow, Gilt-edged and Hepatic Tanager and the Serra-do-Mar Tyrant-Manakin.

Night excursions often prove to be very productive with great chances of seeing Ocellated Poorwill and Tawny-browed Owl.
