I went with my family to this church. This particular church has a lot of history been build by the slaves who captured part of their own african traditions.

The church was closed but it has a very nice location on top of a hill and view is splendid. The place also has some nice aura. It is a steep climb through the narrow streets but was well worth it for me.

funny enough it's the "black men's" church, but as it is on top of the hill, it is very much appreciated and not to be missed from the centre of Ouro Preto...just look up,and there it is! prime location!
