São João Del Rei - MG



One of the most pleasant historic cities of the state

One of the most pleasant historic cities in Minas Gerais, it keeps its marvelous heritage and rich secular traditions. One of the most curious of those is about the bells, passed from one generation to the next. By the bell sound the population knows where, when and by whom it is going to be celebrated the ceremony. They also know if there will be a procession and, in the case of a funeral, if the person who died was a woman or a man. It is not by chance that São João Del Rei is known as the “Land where the church bells speak”.

The city was the place where important historic people from Minas Gerais and Brazil were born or lived: Joaquim José da Silva Xavier – known as Tiradentes, D. Bárbara Heliodora Guilhermina da Silveira and Dr. Tancredo Neves.

Nowadays, the city is a reference for exchange programs and counts with an intense program in its calendar of events.
