  • The impressive works of master Aleijadinho carved in soap stone (some carved into a single block of rock) between the years 1794 to 1804 have numerous meanings, among them: the position of hands and legs, animals and objects that are aggregated in some sculptures, the sequence in which prophets are arranged in front of the sanctuary, predominant Masonic symbols in the sculptures. With a guided tour you get countless information that goes unnoticed in a simple look at the works. I think these historical relics could be better "isolated" from weatherless actions and thus not damage themselves and remain preserved.

  • Well-maintained heritage and with the presence of security to avoid depredation, quite different from experience from 10 years ago. Just a place with difficult accessibility for wheelchair users like most real estate and very old streets (we were with a stroller and it was complicated).
