  • The story goes that the Church was built by slaves and adorned with gold you washed your hair. The slaves of the time could not pray together to not enslaved. The faith was also segregated.

  • Built by Chico Rei and your tribe, the gold taken from the Encardideira mine, brings an awesome story in which the slaves brought gold in her hair and nails in processions and religious events. The black Pope and a cultural and religious symbology.

  • This church is a little far, but definitely worth the visit. As beautiful as others in Ouro Preto, but with a story of its own and peculiarities that deserve to be seen. The entrance is a little cheaper than the other R$ 5.00 (whole). As she gets in a high place, your view of the city is practically a viewpoint and view of your side you can take wonderful pictures of the city.
