Praça Tiradentes, Ouro Preto
(4.6/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
A plaza that commemorates the dead hero Tirandentes, Praça Tiradentes is also a meeting place. Locals and internationals alike use this as a central location to gather before a night out; however, the history is a dark backdrop to a lighthearted night out with friends. Tirandentes was one of the leading figures in the Brazilian revolutionary movement. After his plan to resist the controlling Portuguese authority was hatched, he was tried and hanged in this plaza. Nowadays the plaza is full of life, and closeby a line of pubs toast the brave work of Tirandentes. Make Praça Tiradentes part of your personalized Ouro Preto itinerary using our Ouro Preto vacation generator.

  • A famosa praça da forca e posterior esquartejamento.
  • Ouro Preto's Center is a wonderful place, and it really characterizes the town. Nobody really haggles you; pedestrians walk leisurely and without restraint; and beautiful churches, museums, shops, and restaurants surround the square. Our Preto is a beautiful destination with a rich but troubled history.
  • Amazing place and incredible architecture. This place is the hub to other places in Our Preto. Highly recommended
  • Heart of the town. Jewellery shops, restaurants. Churches, viewpoints. Such a great place!
  • Nice and historical place. Many options of cultural events and local souvenirs stores.
