    For those who will walk up ... give up! With the first trial and street of stones, we almost died of both tiredness ... the view is worth it, but get tennis and water!

    Only go if you are by car, because the path is very steep to get to the Observatory. There is no support structure, is only one location (wall) to stay a few minutes admiring the beautiful view of the city and take lots of pictures. If you're doing guided tour in the city, ask the Guide to take, because it's worth it for the great view from all over uneven ground and the constructions of Vila Rica.

    The view of Ouro Preto's lovely from that point. You can see several of the churches and most of the city. Access is bad because it's a huge hillside Street, that on rainy days, certainly should not be a place much advised to go. But on a clear day, it's definitely an attraction not to be missed. Note: do not advise going on foot, because the slope is huge and if you lose a lot of time to walk.

    More than 100 m of elevation in relation to Tiradentes square. As it is not a straight line, the walk is even bigger. Just go to walk if you're well:-D The view is worth the effort and the photo.

    Hard-to-reach location. When it rains you can only get with 4 x 4 vehicles. The road's pavement but very narrow and steep.

    Is one of the best views of Ouro Preto. Worth getting up in the walk and enjoy the workout in pavement ouropretano. For those who want to continue training, can climb up to the square of the Hill San Sebastian or even to the Park of the swallows.
