Barichara Things to Do: 19 reviews and 67 photos
Most people who travel to Barichara are going not for sights per se but for the overall beauty of an incredibly well-preserved colonial town that looks as if it were preserved in a time-capsule. The architecture is stunning in its simplicity and the overall effect is as if truly stepping back into another era, one approximately 300 years ago. This preservation is no accident as since being declared a national monument in 1978, the town has been restored and scrubbed up to befit such status. It is nonetheless a joy to wander its quiet streets soaking in what is an atmosphere quickly disappearing in modern day South America. Enjoy it while you can.
