    Everything in Tiradentes is wonderful, it is worth visiting all the churches. The city is even more charming if visited on foot, with calm and tranquility. The day I was in this church, was having a race and I was pretty full. It is easy to reach, even though rising, just go slowly that never tires. Beautiful view. It's worth it. Great ride for couples and families.

    It was one of the most amazing places I've visited, the Church is cute, but the highlight is the sight of where she is. Stunning views of the city and the walls. When I went it was windy enough, by the incredible view, gave me an incredible feeling of peace and freedom.

    The Church is always closed, but the site visit is justified by the view you have from the historic city centre and the array of Santo Antônio, which will render beautiful pictures. Is the best viewpoint to observe the colonial mansions.

    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.

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.
