Very interesting guided tour to this work of the Baroque Mineiro. It has one of the most precious remaining organs of colonial Minas Gerais. Organ concerts on weekends.

We have visited Sao Joao, Mariana, Congonhas, and Ouro Preto - some 20 churches already? This one is by far the craziest gold-wise, slightly similar to San Francisco in Ouro Preto.
