Kalinago Barana Autê consists of an interpretation center, snack bar, and gift shop. To begin the tour of this breathtaking model village, a footbridge crossing the river gives way to a circular trail on the northern side and leads to a series of small huts (ajoupas) that are located throughout the site. In the center of this arrangement of small huts is the main Karbet (biggest hut),which is used for cultural and theatrical performances.
