Ouro Preto

Designated a World Heritage Site because of its well-preserved Baroque architecture, the city of Ouro Preto served as the state capital until local governance outgrew the scale of this pleasant valley settlement. Today, those old government buildings house cultural sites like museums and galleries, and rank among the chief attractions in Ouro Preto. Outside of the old town, the lush, hilly landscape rewards exploration, with numerous hiking routes and picturesque, isolated buildings acting as focal points among the impressive scenery. Whether you only want to go to Ouro Preto, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Brazil vacation generator.

Where to stay in Ouro Preto

While it may not be possible to stay in one of the town's grander Baroque buildings, there are plenty of characterful places to sleep in Ouro Preto. In the center, find old town houses converted into small hotels and pousadas (guesthouses)--all located close to the main cultural attractions. If you look slightly farther from the center, you can find accommodations perched up in the town's hills, offering extensive views of the historic center and its proud architecture.
