What you'll do

We will meet at the Church of "Nossa Senhora do Rosário", wich were used by the black people in the colonial times. In there, we can talk about the role of the slaves in the Colonie, discuss how much influence the black has in Brazil's culture, I invite you to look at new point of view about the african americans. This kind of discussion it's unique in this experience, you won't find it with no one else. After that, we'll move on to the Churc of "Nossa Senhora do Pilar", the most rich of the region (In there I'll tell you why). The opulence of the Church it's a great start to discuss the potical and economical power of the Catolic Church. My intention it's to show you a point of view that usually are not discussed, not taught at schools. Then, we will move on to the Church of "São Francisco", one of the biggest and gretest work of "Aleijadinho". In there I'll tell more about the church's history and the life and work of "Aleijadinho" and "Ataíde", great artists in Brazil's history.

Hi, I am a stutend of History in our local university and I work with scholar groups at the Museum. I'm totally in love with Ouro Preto, it's history and it's Art. The church for itself it's a special place, perfect for someone who is a pisces to share this passion for the city. Teach history it's so gratifiant, but do it in places that are so incredible it's amazing.
