Locomotiva, Conservatoria

3.4
#4 of 8 in Things to do in Conservatoria
A beloved symbol of Conservatória’s history, you will find Locomotiva at the entrance of the city. Between 1920 and 1935, it pulled the passenger and freight wagons between Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, before being replaced by the automobile. Up close, you can admire its mechanisms, which were highly advanced for the times. Among its most famous passengers were Joubert Cortines and José Borges de Freitas, musician brothers who today are considered icons of the city’s musical culture. Saved from the scrapheap, restored and repainted, Locomotiva made its final journey, rolling into Conservatória to great fanfare and a ballad, written and sung by José Borges for the occasion.

Where to stay in Conservatoria

Four main roads lead into the town, and along all of these you'll find a good selection of simple bed and breakfasts, as well as larger hotels with ample grounds and good access to the surrounding natural highlights. The modest town center offers a nice selection of two-floor bed and breakfasts, with little to distinguish between them apart from the attractiveness of their interiors and a small fluctuation in price. Generally speaking, the areas outside of the historical core have lodgings with more services and amenities, while in the poky town center area, there's little to tell accommodations apart from residences.
