  • Located next to the Museum of the Inconfidência, this church was built where once there was a chapel. Designed by Manoel Francisco Lisbon, had your project modified by your son Antonio Francisco Lisboa (Aleijadinho), in addition to gilding and painting the ceiling made by master Ataíde. Only church in the region where are the Portuguese tiles. Cobra-if visitation rate and offer a packet the works appearing in church. Worth the visit!

  • R $3 of a ticket for a tour of a church that has a lot of history and is very beautiful. Upon entering you receive a brochure that explains about the location, and must be returned when you leave. The religious art is very beautiful and the room also has Portuguese tiles. Visit the part of the back of the Church and be sure to climb the stairs to the upper floor. There, in addition to the beautiful view, you will see a little more history. Have to visit.

  • Beautiful church with visitation rate of 3 símbolica real. The lawn around is a great rest area overlooking the city.

  • Beautiful. However I don't think it's necessary the visitation rate. We were there after the mass and that's why we get in for free, but there is nothing to justify charging in normal times.

  • Beautiful and made by Aleijadinho's father, but not visited inside because I think the unnecessary collection.

  • Linda Church. Very well cared for and preserved. Great place to take beautiful pictures. Snake just a R$3,00 rate for visitation.
