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.

  • The best view of the city. Go up there and get the complete panoramic view of this unique town and have lots of beautiful photos.  more »
  • The view across Tiradentes is beautiful. If you plan on hiking the Sierra Sao Jose you can stop on the way there (from centro). The chapel itself isn't that interesting.  more »
  • Tiradentes is one of the smallest yet best preserved colonial towns in Minas Gerais. In Sao Francisco de Paula you will find the nicest views of the city, from a hilltop.  more »

  • The Church, retired recently, is very beautiful, is a privileged place where one has great view of the city and of the Serra de São José. Good place for photographs.
