Interesting. I didn't know that brazilian colonial architecture was so close to portuguese medieval one. Except for the big wall around the town it looks like Ouro Preto, São João del Rey, Mariana, Sabará...

I was in Obidos a few years ago and it is truly a wonderful town with a great atmosphere. As you point out, it's preserved incredibly well. Let's have more picture threads about Portugal's small towns (Sintra, Marvao, etc.)!

Yes, many older parts of cities in Brasil resemble portuguese towns.
