  • Along with the Igreja Matriz de Santo Antônio in Tiradentes, form some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Does not charge entrance fees. Beautiful adornments of the Baroque period. Has, in addition to the main altar, six other small altars. The ceiling is painted to the attraction.

  • Linda!
  • I've climbed the tower and the Bell repiquei São Miguel and Souls. And I know in this town and the bells. Luiz Fernando I found Zanetti and Luiz Paulo Almeida. Know the names of the bells in the two towers, at least only 5 bells.

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.
