Nice place, good staring point for most attractions in Ouro Preto. A bit annoying are the tourist guides and the guys trying to lure you to a certain restaurant. Traffic is a huge issue as there is an in and out of cars to all sides. Gets tricky to cross the place without running into a cr.

historical place with atmosphere. Very steep streets on which driving a car especially after the rain you have to do carefully.

This is the center of the historic city into which the two roads from Belo Horizonte and Mariana come into town. Rather than having the statue of the revolutionary Tiradentes (an appellation that refers to the fact that to help people with infirmities in the face, he used to pull or "tira" teeth or "dentes" from their face) facing the...

This is in the heart of Ouro Preto! Here you will find museums, many restaurants, pubs, many handcraft shop that sells soapstone and leather souvenirs. The best way to visit is walking on the steep streets. Should you need a bilingual tour guide you will not need to go further. They are around offering their service. Do not forget to... More

Beautiful place, nice proportions- very clean and European. Traffic slows down around the square which makes it possible to cross the street. Lots of shopping and stopping around

This is the starting point for every visit to Ouro Preto. It is the place where people hang out after a long walk and meeting point. The city government finally removed regular parking there and people have more freedom around there now. It is beautiful during the day and at night time. In one end of the square you have... More
