    Very interesting the process of extracting gold from the mine, where the African technology is present in the process of digging the mine and gold extraction. The staff is friendly and knows the local history. In addition to make peaceful about the trip. Our guide was the Rose coast, a local historian, formed by the Arts Foundation of Ouro Preto-MG souvenir shops, give a special touch to the place.

    It was a very good visit, after visiting the passagem de mariana mine visit this is very interesting to compare the two extremes. We were accompanied by a very nice guide that brought us enough historical information, a little version of men enslaved and brought us a great reflection. Was one of the highlights of my trip peeks (but this is due to the Guide).

    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!

    Pay 25.00 reais per person to enter the Mine. The visitor is guided. Daniel guide who led us is excellent, very funny! The extraction of gold in this mine was carried out manually, which contributed heavily to the history of the city. It's amazing there, as sad and suffocating. But is very worthwhile!

    I liked. -> Enriching Explanation alongside a route not as long or as short. Note: in some places it is necessary to walk down, but nothing as terrible as this if merges with courses in which you stay erect.

    MTO bacana, the Guide also gives you a very good overview of the time. Go without fear, if walking the place looks heavy soon coming, but it's not. Logical go early and get going leave the car at the hotel because it is much easier to locomotion.
