UNESCO - Historic Town Of Ouro Preto, Brazil





Founded at the end of the 17th century, Ouro Preto (Black Gold) was the focal point of the gold rush and Brazil’s golden age in the 18th century. With the exhaustion of the gold mines in the 19th century, the city’s influence declined but many churches, bridges and fountains remain as a testimony to its past prosperity and the exceptional talent of the Baroque sculptor Aleijadinho.
First card showing the church of Nossa Senhora da Conceiçao (Immaculate Conception) and the second card the Esrada Real, which leads to the hill top - but I couldn't for the life of me figure out which church awaits there..!
Thanks to Karina (who also used the beautiful Ouro Preto stamp) and Gisely, who on the contrary didn't use a stamp at all heh :)
