“Baroque or rococo or both? All a bit over-decorated.”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

The blue Delft-like tiles at the sanctuary are, for me, the best part of this church which originated as a Carmelite convent. Entry costs 2Rs and that is cheap so it is worth a quick visit. There are numerous other churches in Ouro Preto to visit.

“Close to Praça Tiradentes, so you won't miss it anyway”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Go and seat anywhere inside. No need to hear the local guides buble talk. Just stare every detail inside-out this incredible church. Notice the porcelain tiles. Check the thickness of the walls. Go behind the altar etc.
