The guide stopped and i thought another church, as there are 13 churches and 9 chapels in Ouro Preto. Many are in need of support and others are undergoing refurbishment and given enough time they will each have a story to tell and show. The churches were built with the social status in mind for example a church for slaves,... More

Built on top of a hill, with a convent aside. Located at 50 meters from the plaza. Beautiful view of the city. It has a lot of beautiful details and a Portuguese design from 1600.

It is not a good idea to visit all the churches in Our Preto on one day, or the excess of gold decoration becomes overwhelming. This church is particularly lovely, and indeed is now designated a basilica. It is superbly richly decorated so one needs a fair amount of time to look around and appreciate the side altars, the ROF... More

The church is another example of Baroque architecture with roccoco embellishments. There is a very ornate fountain inside which one might be frightened to drink from!

The ceilings, the altar,everything magnificently ornated, Portuguese tiles decorating the sides of the altar. It's unique in all Minas Grerais state. The church is in good condition, well restored.
