    We did a quadriciculo ride through the Sierra. It was amazing. The ride is fun, the view is beautiful, is very worthwhile-but go ready to come back dirty, mud, cow poop.

    Every time I go to Tiradentes, love getting admiring the Sierra San Jose! There are many guesthouses that use your sight, as an attractive. This Sierra passes an energy that I can't explain. There is the possibility to walk through it, with a walk that you can do with guide ... I believe that you can do on your own.

    Approximately 5 Km trail with beautiful scenery to see. Some parts of the climb, but no more, if you have with some physical conditioning worth doing!

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.
