Oops! Thanks for the correction, brazilian!

Historic Town of Ouro Preto - Minas Gerais



Historic Town of Ouro Preto

Founded at the end of the 17th century, Ouro Preto (meaning Black Gold) was originally called Vila Rica, or "rich village", the focal point of the gold rush and Brazil's golden age in the 18th century under Portuguese rule.

The city centre contains well-preserved Portuguese colonial architecture, with few signs of modern urban life. Modern construction must adhere to historical standards maintained by the city. 18th- and 19th-century churches decorated with gold and the sculptured works of Aleijadinho make Ouro Preto a prime tourist destination.

Awesome! I went there 2 years ago, everything is beautiful. I love these colorful details in very simple white houses, streets become more "cozy" compared, for example, with Ouro Preto.
