  • The Church is right in the city centre, opposite the old penitentiary. It's not hard to find. I believe you need a down payment, but are $ 3 and worth it! Yields good pictures at the entrance

  • I visited the Church of our Lady of the Rosary in my first day in Tiradentes and was blown away. Despite the need for reforms, the Church is beautiful and full of history, was built clandestinely by the enslaved blacks of the region, which prevented from attending the churches of whites, sought other ways to devote himself to a religion.

  • The Church of our Lady of the Rosary was built by slaves, because they couldn't attend the array, which was frequented by the noblemen. Due to its history and the simplicity of its construction, this is the Church that charmed me most in Tiradentes. Your energy is noticeable.
