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.
Get in touch with nature at Parque Estadual do Itacolomi and Valentine's Waterfall. Discover out-of-the-way places like Santuário do Bom Jesus do Matosinhos and Minas do Palacio Velho. Get out of town with these interesting Ouro Preto side-trips: Mariana (Centro Historico de Mariana, Sao Pedro dos Clerigos Cathedral, & more). There's lots more to do: trek along Estrada Real, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Sao Francisco de Assis, admire the landmark architecture of Santa Efigenia dos Pretos church, and get to know the fascinating history of Rua dos Bancos.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
