Sao Joao del Rei

3.9
Founded as one of the region's great gold mining settlements, Sao Joao del Rei has managed to maintain its prosperity even after the rush died down in the 19th century. Historical colonial-era buildings and a preserved city core characterize the town, along with antique mansions and some of the finest, grandest cathedrals in the region. Early 20th-century Art Deco constructions add to the list of architectural attractions in Sao Joao del Rei, testifying to the wealth brought by rich natural deposits of gold. Despite these throwbacks to the past, however, the city also bursts with modern energy, featuring plenty of contemporary apartment buildings, upscale stores, and pedestrian streets outside the colonial center.
