(4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Built at the end of the 18th century, UFMG Instituto Casa da Glória Igc is a beautiful building with a rich history. The most striking feature is the blue bridge, built some time after 1867, in order to connect the building with the house across the street. Over the centuries the building has served as a private residence, the home of both politicians and bishops, and as an orphanage run by nuns. Today the building is owned by the Institute of Geosciences of the Federal University of Minas Gerais, and contains a small geological exhibition, as well as some information about the building's history.

  • The site that was once the seat of the Bishopric of Minas Gerais and residence of the Bishop of Diamantina, today is a geology Institute incorporated by UFMG. The construction is very interesting and has a path that crosses the road making the communication between two buildings.
