  • At the entrance have small shops, sanitary and water. Before entering a conversation where the Guide nicely and not tiring gives several explanations about is mine and curiosities of the mines. Enter a small group at a time and so did not give the feeling of claustrophobia. Pays a value, if you're with a local guide is given a discount.

  • Before we get into the mine heard a presentation made by David, who managed to show clearly and rich history than we would experience. His enthusiasm for history of Minas Gerais is contagious and admirable. Visit required! Meet the mine wouldn't be as nice without it!

  • The place itself it's no big deal. Is an old mine turned off. But there is a prior presentation and another during the excursion into the mine that are worth the trip!

  • 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.
