  • My intention was to attend a memorial service. I already knew that the Church was closed for repairs, but still risked climbing the Hill to attend mass in the Hall annex in the back. But it wasn't a good idea. Had rained and had mud all over the place ... the sum Work + rain + lack of comfort + climb on foot on the Hill + heat resulted in removal of all the charm of the old church.

  • The Church is located in Uptown, and can see the front of the famous array of St Anthony and the Serra de São José. In late afternoon, the crowd usually congregate there to enjoy the sunset, but I confess that I was wrong on the day, I don't know if time is not favored, but I couldn't see the sunset ...

  • The Church of São Francisco de Paula is very close to the bus station to Tiradentes, atop a gentle slope. In front of the Church has a cross and a beautiful view of the city. I couldn't get in because it was closed. But up to see her worth.

  • Bela vista!
  • Linda
  • Do not enter the Church, but it was worth the visit for the view of the city. Easy to reach, just get on the ramp behind the bus station to Tiradentes.
