Church São Francisco de Paula Ouro Preto Mg
Brazil

Founded in 1698, the old rich town Ouro Preto, historic city that is part of one of the richest cultural legacies of Minas Gerais. It is located 99km from Belo Horizonte. The old rich town Ouro Preto was founded thanks thanks to the discovery of gold in the region. The origin of the city, it is in the discovery of enormous quantities of gold in the centuries XVI and XVII, fact that produced one of the most important episodes of the history of Brazil: The Mining Disloyalty (A Inconfidência Mineira). That city is characterized for the  great old big houses, churches and ancient palaces, which were built in the time of the exploration from the gold.


Besides, the city has the title of Cultural Patrimony of the Humanity, granted by the UNESCO.

Here I gave emphasis the church , São Francisco de Paula of 1804.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
