A must see and a unique experience as most of sculptures are by Antonio Francisco Lisboa (called also Aleijadinho) after he contracted a strange disease most likely leprosies. His art has been celebrated as the high point of baroque art but is never showed outside Brazil. Most of his work is in Congonhas and Ouro Preto. Make sure you have time enough for both the church and the 6 chapels leading up to the church. Inside each of the chapels there is a sculpted scene from Jesus life. Count 1.30 to 2 hours for a good visit.
