The Essential
Recommended
Tiradentes, with its steep cobbled streets, sleepy river, colonial houses and Baroque churches (the Igreja Matriz de Santo Antônio, with its rich gold decor, is a must-see), has not lost its charm of yesteryear, when the city prospered thanks to the success of the mines of Minas Gerais. When the latter ran dry in the 19C, the city came to a halt for a time, until the tourist industry breathed new life into its economy. On weekdays or in low season however, the city drops back into a sleepy lethargy.
