Mercado Municipal (dos Tropeiros), Diamantina

(3.9/5 based on 360+ 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.
