Mariana Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Briefly the administrative centre of Minas Gerais (1709-1720), Mariana was the first city planned by the harbour master's office and the site of its first diocese. This charming, sleepy village, often snubbed by tourists, boasts a splendid and perfectly preserved historical centre. It includes some major Barocco Mineiro buildings (the Baroque of Minas Gerais), such as the Catedral Basilica de N. S. Assunção, and there are elegant colonial buildings lining its wide cobbled streets.
