  • Pillory Standing tall in the center of the square stands out. The Guide explained that when it was enacted the Lei Áurea all pelourinhos in Brazil were destroyed, that they found the original parts Mariana buried on the grounds of the House, has been restored and raised again in the 70, is one of the few originals existing in Brazil. I find it interesting to remind us how was our country's past, where many suffered.
