"Capela de São João Evangelista" is a beautiful small church, which had its construction started in 1760. It is full of history! The legend says that the first heroes of the Brazilian independence from the Portuguese crown - the so called "Inconfidentes" - used to secretly meet at its adjoining parish house (now the "Museu Padre Toledo"), linked to the church through an underground tunnel. True or not, amazing legends anyway! The typical religious colonial construction, with a bell curiously placed in one of its windows (and not at the traditional bell tower), was re-inaugurated in 2016, after a complete restoration. Visiting Tiradentes, check its programme as piano concerts are performed occasionally within its premises. Enjoy!
