Praça Tiradentes, Ouro Preto

4.6
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.

  • Very interesting place, throughout the story that comes from the past ... There's no way not to think and imagine how everything was back then//Think.. Tiradentes was hanged at this location is pure history///around the square has beautiful houses and she is out to other points of interest ... a pity that leave many cars to park on it.. degrades the landscape and location.
