12/26/2023

When we talk about the Royal Road, the cities of Ouro Preto, Tiradentes, Diamantina, and Paraty always come to mind, but the road has treasures that also deserve attention. See our list below:

The Congado of Ouro Preto – held on January 12, this celebration of Our Lady of the Rosary in honor of king Chico is a procession created by enslaved people that continues to this day, with lots of music and beautiful colorful embroidered clothing.

 

Serro Cheeses – for the people of Minas Gerais, this is not news, but for visitors from other states, tasting the cheeses from the city of Serro is a discovery of flavors.

 

The Church of N. Sra. Da Conceição in Sabará – it is little visited by those traveling the Royal Road, but it has one of the most impressive interiors among the churches in Minas Gerais and Brazil.

 

 Tabuleiro Waterfall – For the nature lovers, it's the largest waterfall in Minas Gerais.

The village of Itatiaia – located in the municipality of Ouro Branco, the village is an open-air museum with houses painted with graffiti by contemporary Minas Gerais artists.

 

Santo Antônio Church in Santa Barbara – the painted ceiling, the gilded Baroque altars are beautiful.
