Tiradentes, with its winding cobbled streets and leafy squares, was founded on gold mining in the early 18th
century, and is perfectly preserved, showcasing beautiful houses and ornate Baroque churches displaying sculptures and touches of gold, where you can listen to music recitals, as well as interesting museums and shops displaying unique handicrafts that make ideal souvenirs of your holiday. Experience all its charms on a horse and carriage ride through the village.
Around the area, you can horse ride in the surrounding mountains, enjoy a moonlight trek or hike to waterfalls, for some panoramic countryside views. We also recommend taking the scenic steam train to Sao Joao del Rei, another beautiful 18th
-century spot that is also a thriving modern city, where historic colonial mansions and floodlit churches co-exist with 21st
After exploring, cool off in the pool or visit the sauna, and relax poolside under the shade of an umbrella with a drink - you may spot an inquisitive monkey or two around the flower-filled gardens. When the sun goes in, there are cosy lounges where you can watch TV or curl up by the fire with a good book.
