  • The square itself is a living history lesson, with two churches, a preserved pillory, and the Camera and Jail, where still works the camera. Worth a quiet visit to the site.

  • In Mariana, this square is actually a pillory, where two churches are side by side and in front of a former prison.

  • This square unites elements loaded with history as the churches, the camera/chain and the pillory that served as a place of punishment for the slaves. Recommend a visit to the local twist to be able to understand the magnitude.

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.
