Praça Minas Gerais : Michelin's recommendations
In the middle of the Praça Minas Gerais is the pelo u rinho, a haunting reminder of the tortures inflicted upon slaves. Lining the great green expanse of the square are two Baroque churches: make sure you go inside the more imposing of the two, the Igreja de São Francisco de Assis. The other one, the Igreja de N. S. do Carmo, is noted for its two round towers.
