It's great, stunning. This church is very big, and the ornaments in gold are astonishing. It' worth seeing. Maravilhosa! A igreja é muito grande e ornamentada em ouro. Vale a pena ser visitada.

beautiful, but it´s difficult to find it open. On Sundays you can watch classic music during the mass. At the back there is a cemetery where a dear president of Brazil is buried.

I've been visiting a lot of churches in Ouro Preto and Sao Joao del Rei and definitively this is the most beautiful that I have ever seen! Very preserved, with huge cristal chandeliers.
