Ouro Preto Overview

An old mining city that has since become a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its pure architectural beauty.

Set in the center of a lush green valley, Ouro Preto or the City of the Black Gold, is such a contrast to the Brazilian cities such as Rio. Ouro Preto seems to be set in the olden days still. With a church around every corner and really old beat up vintage cars lining the streets.

Despite this, there is a university vibe underlining all this history. If you look for it, there is a thriving nightlife and also some fantastic rustic restaurants.
