    Worth the visit because the Church is beautiful, with important influences not only the prestigious architect-father of Aleijadinho-but also of his own. Some jewels as the ceiling painted on top of the sacristy. It also offers a privileged view of the city. Gardens are beautiful and the access to the interesting Museum of the Oratorios.

    Beautiful as all other of Ouro Preto, stay with easy access on the square which makes her an almost obligatory passage when it is in town. Pretty busy and great.

    Maybe because we saw it from our room at the hotel and heard their campaigns, perhaps because it was the first church we visited, it is, among all the marvels that has the city, which I liked more. Safety pin, and it is worth climbing the large stairs that take you up to the door!

    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.
