  • A great monument right at the entrance of the city of Ouro Fino-Minas Gerais. A beautiful sculpture of the famous boy of the gate. Easy access and free.

  • It is a monument, inspired by the song of the same name (particularly, the composers had connection with the region, so my opinion is that the municipality mentioned in the song is fine gold-MG-the story is a fiction, I'm not going to get into the controversy) ... anyway ... Lately, the monument's well-kept and yield great photos for souvenir. BUT MUCH ATTENTION (THE MOST IMPORTANT). It is situated on the edge of a busy highway. So, if you record the moment, Park next to the bus stop and plates (on the other side, there's always vacant), pay attention when crossing the road (especially with children) and take your time. In fact, the hint to get into the city and meet the other monuments, ox Heart, Gaudy Statue Square of Batter in front of City Hall. Very interesting also. Or eat snacks in the Bar of clover or visit and shop at the market (both within metres of the location), eat very well on Nikola's (five blocks from there). The hint.

  • When that monument was built, there was a controversy in the city, many people were against it, they said it was in bad taste. What is certain is that the monument has made the city more known and probably helped local tourism. Now I think the place in which it was built is very dangerous, because you have to cross a busy highway. It could have been built on one side only, to avoid that people would be going through.

  • I believe that there is still enough to be a pleasant place for tourists. Lack security, on the shores of Highway MG290 or place wide to park there. Very dangerous place, especially for children. There is no trade (cafeteria, restaurant et.) on the site, just a hovel with shops disabled that is on the other side of the track. Even if you had shops running, it would be impractical or impossible to access them without risk of being hit. The city needs serious look to the most important tourist point of the city and the region. The city is beautiful.

  • A beautiful statue laden with meaning and which became the "gatekeeper" of fine gold. I found it quite impressive for your dimension as far we could realize that we got the fine gold, off that many tourists passing through touch to take a picture with the friendly janitor's boy.
