OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN OURO PRETO

LOCAL MARKETS

Located next to the church of Sao Francisco de Assis is the open local market. Craftsmen sell their souvenirs here, usually carved in soapstone or wood. Even if you don’t buy anything it is worthy of a visit to watch craftsmen carving the stone with great skill!

CITY TOUR

A walk down its picturesque streets allows you to see houses which date from the beginning of the XVIII century, with their balconies of wood, iron and even soapstone. In Minas Gerais Plaza, the churches of St. Francis of Assissi with its richly sculptured door, our Lady of Carmel, the City Hall and the Pillory can be found

SERRA DO SIPO NP

The national park is a full day journey from ouro preto and has some of the best walking in the area as well as the opportunity to kayak and paddle on the calm and clean waters of the Cipo River
