  • A church that impressed by the details. We didn't go with a guide and so missed more info. Is a very pretty square also yields good pictures.

  • Worth the tour. A lot of history and culture in every detail. The works of the interior and the exterior of the Church bring many symbolisms, far beyond the beauty! Pay 4.00 per adult. My son, 12 years, not paid. For a guide that accompanied both inside and outside the Church and the cemetery annex, pay 20.00. It was worth it! Beautiful and very well preserved. The main altar and the entrance are design and feature works of Aleijadinho. The other altars were carved wood intermediaries by his disciples.

  • The only thing wrong with the place, have to pay R $5.00 to enter, I think it's wrong that should be free.

  • Very good representation of late barroque
  • Very beautiful church :)
  • Linda
  • Magnificent!! However, there is a slouch by the city administration in promoting the tourist service. Lack structure for tourist service. The clerk should be identified and have "free" monitors.

  • I found it open to visitation in a Monday. Many details to observe in the notches of the altars made by Aleijadinho. Admission is R $4.00. Recommend paying a guide for more information (price negotiable, suggested R $20.00). Tancredo Neves's grave is in the cemetery Fund, indicated by arrows.

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.
