This is one amazing tourist attraction you have to see when visiting Tiradentes. I was in awe the whole time I was there. You have to pay a small fee to get into the church and when inside, taking pictures is strictly forbiden.

Delightful evening of organ music together with a soprano soloist. The musicians and the organ are in the back of the church and the wooden pews faced forwards, so the seating was unconfortable, to say the least. But hearing an organ that has been in...More

Named after Joaquim da Silva (aka. Tiradentes or the 'tooth puller'), who was a leading member of the Brazilian revolutionary movement wanting independence from Portugal. The town is known for its baroque architecture, particularly this church's facade designed by Aleijadinho. Very ornate gold decorations inside!

It was closed quarter to five in the afternoon, when everywhere it says it closes 5. The access road is under maintenance and we took a little longer to reach the church. When we arrived it was closed. I believe it's a beautiful church, but...More

We've seen literally hundreds of churches and cathedrals in our travels, and this is still one not to miss. It is well worth the walk uphill. We did have a guide, who made the history and architecture come alive for us. The views from outside...More
