Ouro Preto - MG



When the Bandeirantes found gold in the region of Itacolomi (the mountain that dominates Ouro Preto) at the end of the 17th century, they unleashed a veritable multitude of immigrants in search of the legendary Eldorado. Paulistas (the people from São Paulo State), Northeasterners and recently-arrived Portuguese all founded small mining camps, with accompanying small chapels, in various parts of the region. These camps were united in 1711, under the name of Vila Rica de Albuquerque, today Ouro Preto (black gold). At the time, Vila Rica was divided in two parishes. The piety of settlers caused them to form lay brotherhoods, which, with their own resourses, sponsored the religious festivals and the priests. Divided in associations of white, mulattoes and blacks, in accordance with their statutes, they constructed an impressive number of Baroque and Rococo churches in Minas Gerais.
