    On this route you will travel part of the Estrada Real (Royal Road), the largest tourist route in Brazil: it was on this route that the Portuguese Court took the gold production from the state of Minas Gerais to the coast of Rio de Janeiro from the 17th to the 19th century. Today, there remain several sumptuous churches and gracious colonial houses that nowadays are bars, stores and art galleries on romantic cobblestone streets, all surrounded by mountains with lots of vegetation. Sit at outdoor tables in restaurants and enjoy that the state of Minas Gerais is known for having the best gastronomy in Brazil. The state is also known for people who like to receive well, so the visit is punctuated by great homemade restaurants and a vibrant atmosphere. The historic cities are a meeting point for artists and students, what means they are always lively, with many bars on the streets and festivals throughout the year. You will visit museums, old mines and impressive churches, while staying in charming little hotels, tasting great food and having amazing views from the mountains.

This is the atmosphere in this city from 1702 surrounded by mountains covered in green. The best thing to do there is to wander aimlessly, entering every store or looking at every house you find interesting.
