  • Magnificent Baroque church ... your interior is gorgeous ... it's pure gold//very well kept and beautiful works of art. worth a visit with Guide to understand the rich details of the location and history. In the basement there is a very interesting Museum has even works of Aleijadinho. I found expensive 10.00 entry and hope that the money go to the conservation of the Church///If der look through Windows ... always see a different angle of the city.

  • Basilica of our Lady of Pilar, one of the postcards of the city, shows a rich history one of the most visited sights of Ouro Preto. His rich church more 400 kg. gold leaf scattered our Baroque detail. With many devout Saints. Under the Basilica is large collection of Papal robes and silver utensils, which at the time was worth more than gold.

  • 18TH century Church, very well preserved and one of the richest of Brazil, with hundreds of pounds of gold. Tour guides present on the site include a bit of history of this century-old church.
