Upon leaving the museum, return on Da Câmara St., which few
block away becomes Chafariz St., due to the São José Fountain
located there (Chafariz means fountain in Portuguese).
The name Tiradentes was suggested by Silva Jardim, the most
active propagandist of the Republic. In his campaigns, he visited
several cities in the states of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Minas
Gerais. While in São João del-Rei, after being attacked by
supporters of the monarchy, he gave an enthusiastic speech, as
was his style, and threw the idea — Tiradentes. Thus would be
named São João del-Rei, honoring a Portuguese king. Then, when
still during the provisional government, the named changed,
through Decree No. 3, signed on December 6, 1889.
