A World Heritage by Unesco: Ouro Preto

Vila Rica do Ouro Preto (from Portuguese, Black Gold Rich Village) is a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, a former colonial mining town located in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its outstanding Baroque architecture.

There are other wonderful colonial cities on the state called Minas Gerais in Brazil : the nicest are Tiradentes, Diamantina and Ouro Preto but Minas Gerais has the famous Basílica de Bom Jesus de Matosinhos in Congonhas that is World Heritage by UNESCO too . It is interesting to visit too Mariana, São João del Rey, Serro, Caraça etc . I show you a map of the old Royal Road Route:
www.descubraminas.com.br


Minas Gerais has too spa tows wity mineral waters fountains, many caves with prehistoric pictures and where they found the bones of the oldest men of Americas and many iced era fossiles and dinossaurs too. Some parks and museums will be built now to show them and there are other that already exist.

Ouro Preto certainly deserves it's World Heritage Listing. Beautiful.

It never ceases to amaze me that a country like Brazil with a wonderful architectural heritage managed to create some of the most banal and ugly cities on earth from the 1960's onwards. So much was destroyed and replaced by utter rubbish - what kind of minds were responsible for this? Of course the whole world suffered during the dark days of the 60's and 70's but few places suffered as much as Brazil.
