  • Church rich in works of Aleijadinho, artist entry is paid but it's worth a little rundown from the outside, a shame but it's fairly common in the outer areas of the churches in Ouro Preto, qse all are like that.

  • Very beautiful church, marked by the works of Aleijadinho. It is worth visiting the interior ($ 10.00, with entrance to student).

  • Masterpiece of Antônio Francisco Lisboa, who signs the project and the risk of portada. Its facade designed to give effect of depth is impressive. There are Masonic symbols from inside to outside. The facade is supported by two columns (Temple of Solomon, J and B). The cross on the Church is flanked by two pomegranates. In an open-winged Angel dome surrounded by groups of three little angels, forming a triangle. In the washbasin in the high two figures of angels, a safe with an hourglass and the other with a skull. Below one of the angels a blindfolded man. Angels of whole body in five form two triangles being the top one time the low angle. Finally, in the lining, the master Ataíde recorded Masonic hymnal. Worth looking for the other symbols.
