Ouro Preto

.

Ouro Preto, translated “Black Gold”, was the center of Brazil’s 1700’s gold rush.  This literal rich period attracted prospectors along with craftsman who left behind an intricately decorated baroque town center.  Today it is a hub of tourism for those seeking to appreciate the town that looks like an old European village built upon rolling Brazilian hills.
