The ceiling is the work of another master, Ataíde, consecrated by the mining gear.
No caminho da Estrada Real, esta cidade fica no trajeto de quem vai à Ouro Preto e Mariana. Não estava no meu roteiro de viagem, mas resolvi entrar para conhecer. Fui até o Santuário de São João Batis... more »In the way of Real road, this city is on the path of the Ouro Preto and Mariana. Wasn't on my itinerary, but I decided to get to know. I went to the shrine of St. John the Baptist, but unfortunately was closed, but I could see the Church from outside and the surroundings very well taken care of. is for a next opportunity.
The Church was erected in 1763, the same place where adventurers arranchados in the region had raised, in 1713, a small chapel dedicated to St. John the Baptist. It has two round towers on square base, arranged diagonally in relation to the central body of the Church. Lucio Costa identifies the handwriting of Antonio Francisco Lisboa in the design of the façade, the arco-cruzeiro and the innovative daring of the towers diagonally in relation to the body of the Church. The Aleijadinho also participated as a sculptor, primarily on the image of St. John the Baptist, soapstone, placed in the niche of the main façade and, later, in the interior of the Church, on the arco-cruzeiro label, also carved in the same stone. Remarks: the tipping includes all your collection, according to the resolution of the Advisory Board of the SPHAN, 13/08/85, regarding the Administrative Process nº 13/85/SPHAN. Source: Iphan.
