  • Linda church built by black slaves who could not attend the churches of whites. A striking feature is the fact that only a tower.

  • Being a church that for blacks of the period of slavery, can be recognized as a historic landmark. Built with gold gradado in frizzy hair, mucous membranes and animals of slaves, is one of the most beautiful of Tiradentes.

  • The black slaves could not attend the Church frequented by whites, so they built this Chapel, because it only had a tower. The interesting thing is that blacks wanted their church, too, had gold! The gold was brought gradually concealed nail, in the back of the animals; and, hence the proverb: "Wash the mare!", as they washed the animals to leave the gold in the loins of them. So, slowly, has been adding gold, during the construction of the same. That perseverance!

Where to stay in Tiradentes

For an atmospheric stay among the Baroque architecture, consider staying in the center of Tiradentes. Prices inflate greatly on weekends, and in the accommodations directly next to the historical area. Charming pousadas (guesthouses) and small hotels make up most of the selection in town, though budget rooms in hostels can also be found if you don't mind staying a few streets from the major attractions. Out of town, you'll find a few more pousadas along the main roads leading out to the south, east, and west, as well as rental apartments and campsites.
