  • Next to the Museum of Inconfidência is the Church of Our Lady of Carmo, large and with beautiful decoration. It follows the same architectural trends as the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar for its grandeur. Its sacred adornments are much more modest than that of the Basilica, but no less beautiful. With beautiful paintings and an altar beautifully decorated with sacred art fomanted with gold, it is a place of reflection and Christian religiosity.

  • Church right next to Tiradentes Square, next to the Inconfidência Museum. Very beautiful, it is to keep contemplating the architecture and images of the church. At the entrance is made available a paper with the explanations of each area of the church, which helps a lot in the understanding of the construction of it. It is the only one in Minas Gerais, which has Portuguese ajuzelos in the main chapel.
