    Linda Church, rich in architectural details. Super nice guide that tells your construction details that lasted for over 100 years.

    This church stands in the middle of town, little one. Visit is paid but the Church is small and poorly maintained. Once again sorry to see our heritage being lost.

    Bad lighting, was to be very pretty but is very careless. Sad to see an asset as well.

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.
