  • The slaves could not get into the Church that whites attended. They built the Church at night. She is of gold that they took in the hair, mouth. It is noticed that a pulpit was built totally crooked.

  • By not being able to attend churches of the whites, the slaves built this church in the midst of a forest, hiding from the Portuguese. After the deal, they went to the Church to work in construction at night and in low light the Church ended up with one side angled (looks like the leaning tower of Pizza). The Portuguese discovered and seized the Church of slaves. The interior of the Church is all worked up in wood with gold ornaments. Curiosity: in the Church, under the entire floor are tombs of diamantinenses that could afford to be buried inside the Church. The closer the altar more money had the deceased. Photography is not allowed inside the Church and the visit can be guided, so you know the history of this beautiful Church. In front of this church has the famous Gameleira full of legends, where before there was an Iron Cross and where they say a man was murdered. The New York born carrying the cross on their trunks. You can check out these stories by visiting the Church n. s. do Rosario.
