  • I went in the late afternoon, which gave me a beautiful image of the square with the Church in the background and lighting. Too beautiful, worth the visit.

  • This church is in the middle of the city of São João del Rey. It's pretty worn on the outside, inside still has your splendor. The visit is paid, the doorman is rude. Many city guides inside the Church charging to give explanations about the Church, addressing visitors found unpleasant.

  • The Church, the square and the location are simply beautiful. At night the Church is closed, but the charm of the place with the lighting at this time is impressive.

  • 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!

Where to stay in Sao Joao del Rei

Hotels in Sao Joao del Rei tend to be relatively small-scale affairs, and most midsize hotels inhabit old colonial buildings in and around the historical town center. You'll also find a range of bed and breakfasts, which range from multiroom complexes to family-run joints renting out their extra rooms. Smaller, more basic accommodations usually offer lower prices in exchange for fewer amenities. For an experience that combines family-run hospitality with the region's colonial history, consider staying at a "pousada"; these small hotels generally offer the chance to stay within a historical mansion or ranch, and offer plenty of amenities for a decent price. Most accommodations populate the blocks surrounding the city's main canal, within walking distance of the town's old bridges.
