    This mine was in the Van ride we did. It is close to the historic centre, which facilitates the offset. It's just not as good as the mine of the old palace, which also went, but still, it's worth the visit. The Guide knew explain very well the details of mine and aspects of on-site exploration and slavery. There is a small shop that sells gifts in place.

    For adventurous and curious, a great choice and opportunity, to get to know a little more closely, as was the withdrawal of gold by slaves and the techniques used by them, and of course, a little of the history of Brazil and its influences.

    Most striking experience of the trip. Be inside that mine, which was excavated by hand, listening as it was the reality of the slaves who worked was very impressive. An unforgettable experience!

    Attention this is not on the tourist itinerary and not on the tourist map of Ouro Preto, a pity because it could be more visited, an excellent guide, charming and spectacular mine, a return to the past, is very close the Church Nossa Sra. Blacks in a cul-de-sac, is a great tip.

    Very interesting, especially for school children. A brief history lesson presented by monitor helps a lot to understand the importance of black workers slaves during the colonial period. Very safe ride, and offers no feeling claustrophobic. Be short the path. Don't forget to bring a teacher or student portfolio to pay for her entry.

    Very interesting to visit. Pay 25.00 to enter. The mine has an accompanying Guide on the sidewalk telling a little of the story and explaining on how to give a gold extraction at the time of slaves. Passed is not too long, not least because the part open to visitation of the mine is not too large. You learn a lot. I recommend to those who visit Ouro Preto.

    This is one of several mines to visit in the city of Ouro Preto. The guides are knowledgeable and count as gold extractions were held at that time, including how appeared some expressions used until today.

    The ride is short, but is very worthwhile. The guides have enough knowledge about the history of Brazil and adding value to site visitors. The mine is fresh, with some stretches and a spacious Gallery. The mine was dug by hand by slaves.
