  • It's hard to tell where it begins and where it ends the Ouro Preto's historical centre the whole town is historic surprised with everything, I don't know why it took me so long to meet.

  • First, the problems: some beggars, some nuts, and, especially, a larger group of guys who are going to offer you as guides. Even if they have a badge of licensed guides, or authorized, it is better to find out before the attractions in the city, a guide, or on the website of Iphan, and go visiting churches, museums and mines gradually, often relying on information from members of the brotherhoods of the churches, which may be more useful. It's a great city to work out your legs-slope that ends not-good for your cholesterol-all worth his salt restaurant offers a tidbit of Greaves to whet your appetite, and that usually comes after is not so healthy as well. The restaurants and bars of the city have a good supply of craft beers, including the ouropretana of the region, well good to try. Apparently, every cab ride costs $20, no matter how the Tiradentes square to the bus station, which takes less than five minutes, that is the chapel of father Faria, already on the periphery, to the Church of our Lady of the Rosary, many slopes before and after. Worth? Right, if you want to understand even the brazilian culture, our religiosity to fantasies of carnival parades, has to go there.

  • Very attractive historic centre, but with many slopes. Get ready to walk. The legal Center's swim walk and get cracking. With many museums and churches, I recommend hiring a guide to better know the places.
