  • Not easy as Ouro Preto is on the side of several hills and this church is at the top of a tough side in the heat with the disjoint cobblestones, but the game is worth the candle.

  • The Church is located in one of the highest points of Black Gold, so it was the Church of the slaves. Is not rich in gold as the others, but has less detail, your interior is beautiful, very well worked.

  • This site is of magnificent beauty and history. Its interior is worthy of a visit with time, to admire the rare beauty that is part of brazilian history.

  • Very interesting Church. Is a good example of the intermixing of cultures-although it is a Catholic Church can be seen in the carvings in wood, especially at the high altar, depicting seashells, snails, horns and other elements of African religiosity. As the Church is one of the highlights of Ouro Preto is also a prime location for observing the city or taking photos.

  • When you get to the Black Gold be sure to hire a guide to visit the places. We got lucky with our. A student of history that made us travel through time.

  • Interesting for the representation of a black Pope in prime position on the roof of the main altar. Internal ornamentation deserves attention. It's a shame that there isn't a publication with good pictures and description of the artwork there drawn, as with other churches of Ouro Preto. Day 21 of September's feast day of the patron saint of the Church, which prevents the ingress of guided tours throughout the day. However, it might be interesting to watch the congados presented at night. Access the street Santa Efigênia is somewhat steep; If you prefer to access over there, be prepared for the effort. The left side of the Church offers a good overview of the city.

  • Very beautiful church, visitation. I just think that prohibit photos without flash doesn't make sense, even charging the visitation.
