  • Quite imposing and outsized for the town, it shows Brazilian Baroque at its best. The price is quite high, and no photos can be taken. The best is the small square in front of it.  more »
  • Nice church, you should visit if you are at the historic center. It's in walking distance from the train station, so it's worth visiting if you came from Tiradentes.  more »

  • The Church of San Francisco is one of the major of São João Del Rei. The visit is a walk in history. The beautiful altar has gold-plated masterpieces and a material representation of the Holy Trinity where they see the images of God Father, God Son and God the Holy Spirit. The altar also features spectacular paintings and a beautiful chandelier to cast off the beautiful decoration. The Church still has multiple images called "Santos de Roca", IE, images, dressed in black, with real hair, often donated by believers. The value of the entry is almost symbolic (between R$4,00 or $5.00) unless corrected. There are some guides that offer your work within the Church, although massante, worth hiring to meet the Church and all its details. The funds of the church there is a historic graveyard, where he is buried the former President of the Republic Tancredo Neves.

  • One of the beautiful expressions of the Baroque style Miner at the end of the gold cycle, showing unfinished parts in duration. Makes it so something more beautiful and instructive in the preview, which lets you know the process of the work. The circular forms architecture brings unique aspects in this building.

  • Beautiful church! Doesn't have the freshness to ban shooting such as Ouro Preto and admission is really cheap, 4.00 R$ you pay. The Fund is the cemetery where he's buried Tancredo Neves. Worth the ride!

  • Linda Church. Cobra 4 reais to enter. Check out the change because I was wrong (and the collector acted in bad faith) when I visited day 24 December.
