  • Is a very pretty jgreja too. I confess that we don't because we got tired of paying for all the churches that we'd go. But if you're willing is one of the main town.

  • When you're visiting the historic cities of Minas is fact we found many churches, each with your specificity. The Cathedral impresses by the grandeur and predominance of the Baroque style, with gold accents. We also visited the Campo Santo in the same order of the Cathedral, another example of the power of the Catholic Church that remains to this day. Admission is R $5.00 and has half-price. Worth the visit.

  • Charming! A lot of pomp, lots of gold, lots of symbolism. Peace and environment loaded with history. Outside the Church is careless, deserving a restore. But inside, is perfectly preserved. It was worth the investment of us $5.00 per adult to help in the conservation of the Church.

  • linda a catedral
  • Linda!
  • A complete work of art! Fully crafted in wood carvings, rich Baroque architecture. Cobra-if a small value for the visitation: 5 and a half real 2.50 for over 60 years.

  • Although the facade is not in very good condition, the interior is really amazing! The details of each piece made it worth the entry of R $5.00.

  • Beautiful altar with Golden details. Worth knowing, although it is in need of reform.

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.
