Praca Tiradentes, Ouro Preto

4.4
A plaza that commemorates the dead hero Tirandentes, Praca 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.

  • In a historic city, tiradentes square still "passes" to your visitor the air of the past. Really it should be the ride.
