  • Pelourinho is a representative of the history of Brazil, even if it's a black page hard to erase. Pelourinho is at the center of the small square. Is impressive!

  • Some say that this is the only pillory of mines. But it's nice to visit and see the whole story revolves around this pillory.

  • Located in Minas Gerais impresses for being "surrounded" by two churches and to characterize as an area of execution. Is a symbol that impacts to send us the brutality of the time. Worth the visit twist to "understand" this moment in our history.

Where to stay in Mariana

Many of the most convenient places to stay in Mariana lie within a walkable distance of one of the city's main squares, the Praca Tancredo Neves. A surprising array of accommodation options cluster in the town core, from family-run bed and breakfasts and shared houses to more upscale, resort-style hotels complete with swimming pools. Keep an eye out for "pousadas," independently-owned guesthouses or lodges, often within a historical mansion or residential building. Alternatively, nearby Ouro Preto features a larger array of accommodations, though you'll need to bus or drive into Mariana.
