A plaza that commemorates the dead hero Tirandentes, Praca Tiradentes is also a meeting place. Locals and internationals alike use this as a central location to gather before a night out; however, the history is a dark backdrop to a lighthearted night out with friends. Tirandentes was one of the leading figures in the Brazilian revolutionary movement. After his plan to resist the controlling Portuguese authority was hatched, he was tried and hanged in this plaza. Nowadays the plaza is full of life, and closeby a line of pubs toast the brave work of Tirandentes.

Beautiful plaza with a statue of the hero Tiradentes. Right behind it its the Museu da Inconfidência, a museum telling the story of the revolution attempt that took place in Brazil. The square is beautiful and clean, surrounded by shops and restaurants. I felt that the traffic was a bit chaotic over there, but aside from that everything was beautiful. It is specially gorgeous under the twilight.
Cool and calm place where you can find amazing hand made design on stones
