Ouro Preto was made rich by one thing: Gold. It has even changed its name of Vila Rica (Rich Town) to Ouro Preto - Black Gold.

The town is still full of architectural highlights from the Gold Rush days. And since Ouro Preto is considered one of the two best-preserved colonial towns of the nation, you cannot afford to miss it.

The many churches and wealthy mansions, the cobbelstone streets make the town a must-see.

Ouro Preto is 100 km southeast of Belo horizonte and can be visited as a daytrip from there.
