Mariana

Churches · Landmarks · Fountains
The oldest city in the state, colonial-era Mariana entices visitors with its wide range of architectural gems and a historic city core. Founded in 1696, Mariana's humble beginnings lie with the discovery of gold in the region: during its first 100 years, it transformed from a gritty mining hub to the seat of a bishopric, eventually developing into an important religious center with a growing population. A tour of Mariana reveals Baroque churches, antique homes, and some of the most striking public squares in the region, all surrounded by forested hills. Thanks to frequent intercity bus services, it makes a great low-key day trip from nearby Ouro Preto. Use our Brazil day trip app to arrange your visit to Mariana and any other destinations in Brazil that take your fancy.
