  • This baroque church is just stunning in its decor just filled with gold covered wooden carvings. From the main altar to the side chapels the intricate gold figures are just stunning.

  • Unbelievably ornately bedecked in gold cathedral.. You have to buy tickets down the street (10 reais). Beautiful paintings on ceiling and supposedly the most gold in a cathedral besides Recife,

  • Amazing historic church with gold. You need to buy ticket to enter not at entrance, at house around 10meter from here. Fee is 10BRL per adult, 5BRL per kids. It is much more worth than fee. If you visit Ouro Preto, you must plan to visit here. By the way, there are hills around there if you go from Tiradentes plaza. It’s better to think time and energy.
  • The second reaches church in Brazil. From 1711 to 1733 to be build.
