  • The Church on the outside has a beautiful architecture. Inside I didn't think it would be necessary to know, since the city has many attractions and you end up getting lost with so many options. Interesting from the outside!

  • Linda Church in your differently and your rich history. Enjoyed your visit and hear their stories of our guide. A must for those who visit Ouro Preto.

  • I'm not an architect but the Our Lady of the Rosary, considered the most "poor" of the churches of Ouro Preto, for not having gold in their altars or carved, since it was built by and for slaves, seemed the most interesting architectural point of view, of the city. Basically, it's a variation on the figure of the circle: your front facade looks like it was twisted at the ends to get that smooth curved appearance. Inside, the nave and the chancel altar are also enclosed in circular spaces, as is evident by looking at the ceiling. In fact, before you go in, walk around the entire building to enjoy the curved lines also from abroad-and note that unfortunately the Church urgently needs a better conservation. The central and lateral altars have gold in your decoration, I wrote-and compensate it with colorful paintings, light, with geometric patterns combining flowers, a result that seems to foreshadow Matisse. The whole Church, with your curvy appearance, reminiscent of a Frank Gehry project, by the way. With the difference that's prettier and less loud. The Church was also the only one who visited in the city not to charge admission to fixed price-if you want, leave a contribution, but it's your decision. Scroll through the curved corridors around the altar of the sacristy, and on the left side who come in, stop at the window to admire the view of the city and the mountains. During the visit, it is likely that one of the members of the brotherhood, which is near the entrance, watching the inside, do you have a small surprise with one of the sculptures of Saint. But I'm not going to tell, go and find out.
