Designated a World Heritage Site because of its well-preserved Baroque architecture, the city of Ouro Preto served as the state capital until local governance outgrew the scale of this pleasant valley settlement.
Sao Pedro dos Clerigos Cathedral and Minas do Palacio Velho are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Estrada Real and Museu de Arte Sacra. Explore Ouro Preto's surroundings by going to Congonhas (Museu de Congonhas & Capelas dos Passos da Paixao de Cristo) and Catedral Basilica da Se (in Mariana). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Santa Efigenia dos Pretos church, get to know the fascinating history of Rua dos Bancos, look and learn at Observatorio Astronomico da Escola de Minas, and see the interesting displays at Museu da Pharmacia.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Ouro Preto online journey planner.

In June, daily temperatures in Ouro Preto can reach 29°C, while at night they dip to 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
