Built by slaves in the 18th century, during the golden age in Brazil. Lots of gold, beautiful painted ceiling, original hardwood floor. Great view from up there.

This is an over-the-top church. Too bad photos are not allowed, you just have to remember it. One word: gold! This makes Tiradentes a village not too be missed.

More than a Saint Antonio Church, this religious monument is called Matriz, which is the second highest nomination after a Cathedral ! This church has perhaps more gold than any other in the region of historic cities of Minas Gerais. Not only the walls, but...More

This is one amazing tourist attraction you have to see when visiting Tiradentes. I was in awe the whole time I was there. You have to pay a small fee to get into the church and when inside, taking pictures is strictly forbiden.

Delightful evening of organ music together with a soprano soloist. The musicians and the organ are in the back of the church and the wooden pews faced forwards, so the seating was unconfortable, to say the least. But hearing an organ that has been in...More

The Santo Antonio church offers a "guided narrated story" show of lights and sound that is unmissable. It's spoken in Portuguese, but nevertheless it is such a beautiful place to see under the programmed lights. It is totally worth the visit. Unfortunately it is currently...More

It is a beautiful baroque gem having more than three centuries of history. There was an automated presentation with voice (Portuguese only) and lights, highlighting details of the construction. I had the opportunity to combine the tour with the live presentation of the organ, fully...More
