Entering the historical city by local transport - you will have to leave the bus and walk - but it is impressive - a great landscape in the most romantic city of Brazil !
This city - transit of gold and diamonds - but more than that - the city of the first rebel and revolution against the Portugese gouvernment in Brazil - Joaquim Da Silva Xavier is a topic in Brazil !!
Visit this town and enjoy the architecture !
Location 12km from Ouro Preto - on the way up to Bel Horizonte and first Capital of the Minas Gerais
Mariana was founded in 1711 - on the spot where the bandeiras found gold
The name of this previous Capital was given as honour to Queen Maria Anna of Austria
wife of Joao V
Directions: Next to Ouro Preto and Bel Horizonte
"Placa Tirandentes" -
View on "Museu da Inconfidénca."
I remember it was just great to walk through the streets of this historical city - enjoying the atmosphere.
Address: Ouro Preto
Directions: Just the center - free of trafic - a joy to walk - hills up and down.
