We arrived at the site on a Saturday when it was closed between 11 and 1 and did not make it back during our time in Ouro Preto with so many other sites and churches to see. The veranda around the church is a scenic...More

This really amazing church is more like an opera house inside, the way the curved balconies are arranged. It costs BR10.00 to visit and is only open in the afternoons. The ticket office is actually a few doors down from the church itself. There's no...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.

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!
