The title of World Heritage Site was not accidentally awarded to Ouro Preto. The city is home to the greatest architectural ensemble of the Brazilian Baroque, preserving jewels such as the churches of São Francisco de Assis, considered the icon of style in the country and Aleijadinho's masterpiece; and Nossa Senhora do Pilar, ornamented with more than 400 kilos of gold.

During the day, the program is to unveil altars and images, panning pieces in antique shops and soapstone handicraft fairs, kicking around the shops and cafes on Rua Direita. For that, don't forget the comfortable shoes, which are also welcome to enjoy the night in the bars or at the parties that stir up student republics.
