Fountain Tourist Spot
Dating from 1749, Sao Jose Fountain this attractive colonial fountain is all the more picturesque thanks to its pleasant wooded surroundings. With its stone cross, Portuguese coat of arms and statue of St. Joseph, the fountain bears a striking resemblance to the facade of a church. The three separate water spouts are for humans, animals and clothes washing, and the water is supplied by a slave-built aqueduct from 1 km (0.6 mi) away. The fountain is still in use today, so feel free to quench your thirst whilst you are there.

  • We know the fountain and your story by a boy named Hadrian who drove us there with your cart and your horse. Told the story of the fountain, took pictures. The history of the city.

  • Historical, beautiful and bucolic. This is an obligatory stop on the visit the tiny Tiradentes. Allow yourself to hear the stories of the place and know the dozen television productions with this scenario.

  • It is a historical point for you come look and leave. Now, for anyone who's a poet or writer the place is inspiring. The downside are the cars that insist on passing nearby and should be banned.

  • It's a very cool place, but very badly maintained. In fact, like many other parts of the city. Worth the visit.

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.
