Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Many streets and buildings in this historic city date from the 17th century, the region's gold and diamond digging period. You can find particularly fine examples of Brazilian Baroque architecture, preserved by UNESCO in 1999, in the historic center of town, not far from where the famous town market, Mercado Municipal (dos Tropeiros) is held. Here you can see the Old World collide with the New, as you walk over streets paved with cobbles, locally known as "children's feet." The market itself is the site of a popular fair where you can blend in by dancing with the crowd, listen to traditional and modern music, or relax over some local delicacies and drinks sold right on the spot. Nearby is the Cooperativa de Artesanato, which specializes in the renowned Arraiolos-style wool carpets, which you can also purchase at the market.

  • Bad maintenance, small, unattractive for tourists with children, found nothing in a market of any city.

  • I confess that the framework let me down a bit: it is just an old shed, open, without any structure or beauty. When in operation for many typical food stalls, and the site is very busy. Is historic, and worth the visit.

  • One of the main tourist sites of the city, with typical food fairs in a distinctive environment is a good choice of entertainment in Diamantina.

  • Bom lugar de pegar uma comida
  • Muito bacana
  • Lugar agradável
  • Ótimo mas a prefeitura devia cuidar mais do nosso património e impedir que seja realizado eventos tais como de quadrilha paga por escolas particulares o que cai muito com as escolas públicas
  • Lugar pra comer as comidas regionais deliciosas de Minas. Muito bom recomendo à todos que visitar essa região... 😀
