  • Small, unpretentious Church, the oldest in the region, but keeps a beautiful altar and an interesting story about who built it, amid the many riches of the time.

  • I went to make a visit to church and was going on a mass, watched until the end, it was great! Purifies the soul, and you contact god, apologizes and thanks you. Beautiful place with works of art expetaculares.

  • The Church is of a very great simplicity, but a good guide, as it was in our case, in the context of the social and historical period in which she was built, which greatly magnifies the value your partner/historical/cultural.

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.
