Ouro Preto - Baroque UNESCO heritage

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. I show you a map of the old Royal Road Route:

Unfortunatelly we can´t take pictures inside the churches because they are full of golden and richness art. The museums are precious too.
