  • Yes, it's good. Danilo's presentation especially when narrated the matriarchal culture of the regions and African culture.

  • It is very interesting to discover a gold mine. Something totally out of my reality and with a very interesting story about slaves and your excavation. Worth knowing.

  • One of the best rides in my opinion. A real history lesson with so much knowledge that you can't even imagine. Understand how happened the first mining activities in the country is an incredible experience. The local guides already included in the value of the input are super attentive and have an amazing knowledge of the place. Well worth the visit

  • It is a magnificent promenade along an old mine from the colonial era. The guide knows a lot and has the history of mining in the region with much emphasis on the tragic reality that slaves lived. The ride lasts no more than half an hour and only get 25 real. It is reachable by taxi or bus line that pass many. Tiradentes square they are 20 reales from taxis.
