  • Sensational location. Did the crossing twice with the Agency's Guide Uai Trip. Is a class on natural history and is an excellent opportunity to walk to take photos.

  • I made the crossing in the Serra twice with Iau guide Trip. She's pretty, has a waterfall and a stone road built by the slaves. I didn't think it was difficult, but due to the long and tiring journey. It's beautiful to see, photograph and be in it.

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.
