Ouro Preto [ 1 dia ]
There are some attractions in Ouro Preto that descubraminas.com considers to
be essential. The person with time for just one full day in Ouro Preto will have
to choose and prioritize, since it is impossible to visit and appreciate them all in
one day. It is ideal to spend two days in the city in order to see everything in a
more relaxed and calm manner.
The Tiradentes Square is the central point of the city; it is as if it were a divider.
From that point, one can programme visits. Ouro Preto possesses steep slopes
and you can take a considerable amount of time to traverse them. Walking is,
however, the best way to get to know the city, which is an open-air museum,
and to best observe it from different angles.

A day in Ouro Preto
Start your visit in the Tiradentes Square and do not forget to keep an eye on the
open hours of the attractions to best take advantage of them.
Important!
During your visit, pay attention to the fountains, bridges, chapels and
oratories along the way. Along with the great constructions these items
make up part of the city’s rich architectural collection.
Praça Tiradentes - Tiradentes Square
The location of the present-day Tiradentes Square was, in the 18th Century,
known as Morro de Santa Quitéria, and during almost the entire 19th Century,
it was called Praça da Independência (Independence Square). In 1894, with the
inauguration of the monument in honour of Tiradentes, it became known as
Praça Tiradentes (Tiradentes Square).
In the Tiradentes Square, one can visit the:
Museu de Ciência e Técnica

Palace during the colonial, imperial and republican periods.

Things to observe in the Square
Monumento a Tiradentes
Tiradentes Monument
In the centre of Tiradentes Square, the monument in honour of the independence martyr
marks the Ouro Preto landscape. It was erected in the location where Joaquim José da Silva
Xavier’s head was put on display to the population of Vila Rica. The cornerstone was
revealed on the day of the centenary of Tiradentes’ death – 21st of April 1892.
Conjunto Alpoim
Alpoim Complex
The houses with the numbers 52 to 70 were probably projected by Brigadier José
Fernandes Pinto Alpoim. Among them is the house of Dom Manoel de Portugal e Castro,
the last governor of the Captaincy of Minas Gerais in the colonial period. The three metal
railings on the balconies contain a peculiarity: inscribed on them is the phrase “para
memória do benefício imortal teu nome fica gravado neste metal” (“to the memory of the
immortal benefit, your name is engraved in this metal”). It is said that the governor’s lover
was who ordered that the inscription be made on the house’s balcony.
Chafariz da Praça Tiradentes
Tiradentes Square Fountain
Installed along with the staircase wall of the Conspiracy Museum, it has the particularity of
having been inaugurated on the birthday of Dom Pedro II. On its inscription is written:
“Inaugurated on the 2nd of December 1846, 21st birthday of His Imperial Majesty Dom
Pedro II, by order of the President of the Province Quintiliano José da Silva”.

After visiting the attractions at the Tiradentes Square, it’s time to walk around

Opera House. Enter Brigadeiro Musqueira Street, in front of the Conspiracy
Museum’s staircase (right side)

Municipal Theatre
The Ouro Preto Theatre, known in the 18th and 19th Centuries as the Opera
House, is considered by many to be the oldest in South America. It is the oldest
functioning theatre in Brazil, to be sure. It also possesses a differential in that it
was the first theatre where women stepped on stage in Brazil. It is one of the
most charming attractions of Ouro Preto.

This is, without doubt, the most beautiful and robust fountain in Ouro Preto. It

Fountains
Essential for the colonial populations, the fountains were
spread around towns, in strategic points, due to the lack of
piped water to the residences. Construction was the
responsibility of the Municipal Chambers. The “fountains
gave way to meetings among slaves and the inevitable
gossip about what was happening in the households”
(Históra da Vida Privada no Brasil). Uproars and arguments
were frequent, so much so that, in some towns, it became
prohibited for slaves to gather at the fountains.
Bridges
It is common to see crosses on bridges. The very
superstitious people of the 18th Century were very afraid
of crossing bridges at night; for them, the spaces of any of
them were places for demons and lost souls to gather.
Thus the motive of placing crosses at the bridges, since
people felt safer when they were present.
