First time visit was a very positive experience. The town is full of small gift shops and restaurants that cater to a variety of tastes and budgets. We found everything to be clean , neat, and visually appealing. But check before you go what days are best for everything to be open. And be prepared for walking on some seriously cobble stoned streets and uneven sidewalks, which only add to the charm.

Great visit, for those that enjoy colonial architecture, and wish to see one of the few extremely well preserved city centres of the colonial times, when the Portuguese crown extracted gold, gems and other precious valuables from the mining regions of Minas Gerais. Tiradentes' historic city centre still preserves much of the traditional aspects, and is a tourist-welcoming city - probably one of the finest, together with Ouro Preto, along the historic "Estrada Real" route which was the "royal road" from the mining towns of Minas Gerais, to the two exporting ports of the state of Rio de Janeiro: Rio, and the small port of Parati.

If you've never been to Tiradentes, rush! You are missing one of the most beautiful Brazilian colonial towns! Surrounded by the mountains of Minas Gerais State, right on the old gold trails, you'll find Tiradentes. The city was probably found in 1702 by the brave "bandeirantes" (first explorers of Brazilian hinterlands), coming from São Paulo and prospecting gold and other minerals. As gold was found on the hillsides of magnificent "Serra São José", the first settlements started and Tiradentes (then known as "Vila de São José") became one of most important gold mining areas in the whole State do Minas Gerais in the 18th century! Spare at least two full days to explore Tiradentes, its cobblestone streets, the colonial buildings, the awesome museums, the sacred churches and its many restaurants and cafés! Eating in Tiradentes may be an unforgettable experience! One last and important remark: Tiradentes has been appointed a Brazilian National Heritage Monument! One more reason to do not miss this historical town! Enjoy!

Tiradentes is full of color, light and artists. The sunny neighbor to darker Ouro Preto (appropriately, Black Gold) , which seems weighed down by its history of slavery, mining and revolt. Tiradentes shares this history, but is a more cheerful city, and more walkable. Ouro Preto’s extremely steep, narrow, and slippery streets are difficult, whether on foot or driving.

Similar architecture of Paraty and Ouro Preto, however the city is "being hugged" by Serra de São José (São José Hill), what makes it landscape unique. The best places (meaning renovated ones) in the Historic Center of Tiradentes are on Rua Direita and Rua da Cadeia and the ones close nearby - you find some of the best restaurants and local shops.
Not rated as 5 because some houses of the historic center are under (or should be under) renovation.

The historic center is paved with old historic stones, very irregular. You must visit it by walking, be prepared for a difficult walking

Tiradentes is another city on the Minas gold trail. However, it is more than that. It truly is a colonial gem with lovely cobblestone streets, quaint brightly coloured houses with well preserved churches and buildings. Although it is a small city with a vast majority of the major attractions all within walking distance. Allow a half to full day to truly explore this exquisite city. There are many craft and specialty shops to explore. Also has many lovely restaurants to dine in which are concentrated around and near to the central square. For a unique experience take a horse drawn tour around town. Is better if you have a guide to fully appreciate the historical significance of the various churches and other attractions that Tiradentes has to offer. Certainly my favourite city in Minas and one not to miss.
