Destinations   Tiradentes

Tiradentes is one of the smallest yet best preserved colonial towns in the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais. It has a population of about 6000 and boasts some fine examples of 300-year old buildings, like the impressive gold-filled Matriz church. It is also well-known amongst food lovers for its food festival in August and its many good regional and modern restaurants.

One of the most charming towns in Minas, Tiradentes has lovely inns, highly-rated restaurants, tempting shops and a generally up-scale ambience. One of Aleijadinho's last projects, the Saint Anthony Church at Tiradentes housed a sophisticated eighteenth-century organ, still used in the celebration of masses. Framed by the splendid São José mountain range, this town conducts an annual film festival and a world- class gastronomic festival. A place not to be missed.

It is considered to be a tropical altitude climate, where the days are comfortable and the nights are cool. The average temperature is around 17°C (63ºF).

How to get there:
By Air: the closest airport is Confins, located in Belo Horizonte. Leaving Belo Horizonte, take BR-040 to Barbacena. Enter the city and take the São João Del Rey exit over BR-265.
