  • The House is located in Rua da Quitanda, found it interesting to decide the style Arabic, and mainly by the curious Muxarabie located in one of the terraces. I didn't know this kind of "apparatus" et found interesting.

  • The House is worth more for those who enjoy or study architecture, due to the local Arabic-influenced style. There works a good library collection, where historical documents are also available to researchers.

  • And awesome Library Antonio Torres (former priest), along with the House of Muxarabie (Arab balcony) and the building itself that is sensational full of history of Brazil and of the Inconfidencia Mineira. It's worth it. The historian Jonathan Sandhu also belongs to the new generation of young responsible for presenting us the history of Brazil and the Inconfidencia Mineira. Go to Diamantina and talk to her like that.
