  • Excellent place. Guide was a Historian who happens to be married to a Geologist. She clearly made her homework... surprising on geological accuracy, intertwined with historical facts... Result... tour was awesome!
  • Great
  • Guided tour of the mine with lots of historical information and guide with enough knowledge about the history of ouro preto. With information about the mining techniques brought by Africans ... that is not very disclosed by history books and often unknown to us Brazilians. Congratulations on your premises and dedication in this excellent historical work and dissemination of our culture. The site has crafts shop and bar.

Where to stay in Ouro Preto

While it may not be possible to stay in one of the town's grander Baroque buildings, there are plenty of characterful places to sleep in Ouro Preto. In the center, find old town houses converted into small hotels and pousadas (guesthouses)--all located close to the main cultural attractions. If you look slightly farther from the center, you can find accommodations perched up in the town's hills, offering extensive views of the historic center and its proud architecture. In this established tourist destination, you'll find luxury and budget options to suit a range of tastes and requirements.
