  • Walk through the historic center is like going back to the past. With its narrow streets, observe their colonial-style buildings, into these houses that today can be cafes, restaurants, shops, hotels etc. Not to mention its cultural wealth, knowing the churches and museums. It's worth walking calmly to know every detail of this city that is Cultural heritage of the Humanity.

  • The other Black History Center is a place full of history to visit, has all kinds of cool architecture and attractions. But the city is not very pretty, but the attractions and points are really cool.

  • Very pretty. The architecture and the history of the slaves make the difference. I went with my in-laws, 81 years. Difficulty of locomotion. Exhausting for them. We hired a tour guide, kkkk, people, it's worth it! His name is NIVALDO, known as Transcotta. Kkkk a figure. He charges 130 reais, but negotiating just settling for 50 reais. But as the service is very good, we gave 100 reais. He took us to lunch. Save also. Of 45 reais per person, was real and we ate very well 18.90. We did all the sights, including the ride in the gold mine of sec. 18 all in 4 hours. We Love Ouro Preto. For sure I will come back.
