  • One of the oldest churches, built by slaves, ditch the visit, quick access right there close, has a ceiling that impresses.

  • During my visit to Tiradentes, I had the privilege of attending a wedding in this Church. Yes, I was a misfit, but for good reasons (rs.) The Church was beautiful. Little one, does not fit all, some guests (including penetrates here ...) remained outside, but attentive to detail the architecture, ornamentation and ceremony. Everything so interesting and beautiful that stuck in my memory as a sensory and emotional experience. I LOVED.
