Travel Tips for Tiradentes

Pousadas e Restaurantes- Lodging and Restaurants

by dargains

Quando for para Tiradentes, muito cuidado ao escolher a sua pousada, a maioria das pousadas lhe oferece alto luxo, logo sao muito caras, porem existem excelentes pousadas, a preços razoaveis, pesquise bem antes de reservar.

Mesma coisa acontecem com os restaurantes, tiradentes e um polo gastronomico nacional, por isso la se encontram varios Bistros chiques, a precos bem salgados, porem tambem existem, restaurantes de comida tipica mineira baratinhos.

Be aware that in Tirandentes most of the Hotels are very fancy, and expensive, but if you look for you can find cheap good lodges.

Same thing applies to restaurants, because Tirandentes is natrional pole of gastronomy, so there you have a lot of expensive Bistros, but you also have good tipical restaurants.

Inconfidencia Mineira

by elsadran

At the end of the 18th century some exceptional personalities of the local community, full of passion for freedom and love for their country and inspired by the flame of the French Revolution in 1789, decided to start their own rebellion and created the "Inconfidencia Mineira" against the Portuguese. One of them was "Tiradentes", a national hero.
They planned to make up a new government and then demand their independence from the Portuguese who ruled their country and took all the riches while the people were starving. They would all fight for their cause and would establish a republic freed from the exploitation of the empire... They were finally betrayed by one of them and were thrown to prison. Some of them were sentenced to death but were not executed. Only Tiradentes was cruelly decapitated and cut to pieces....!!! His pieces were exposed around the region to intimidate his future imitators.
It was 21 of April 1792.

Magic quality of the past

by elsadran

Tiradentes is one of the historical cities in the “circle of gold” in Brazil. It has been kept unspoilt and beautiful. It has plenty of harmonious colonial houses reflecting the city’s elegant spirit. In the years following the gold rush it was forgotten, until in 1970 some businessmen from Rio decided to help restore the beautiful houses. Today it looks as if the whole place has been frozen in time and this makes the tourists happy, at least those who seek peace and a quiet cultural atmosphere. The main attractions are the Railway station, the famous Maria Fumaça, the beautiful churches, the house-museum of Padre Toledo and the colourful houses.
You can still hear the sounds of horse drawn carriages on the cobblestone streets and you can still let yourself get carried away by the charm of the local craft and culture

Tiradentes is also known for the quality and variety of its cuisine, serving typical dishes from the area as well as an array of international dishes.
The local guides offer great hikes on the mountain, the beautiful waterfalls and the hot springs Aguas Santas. They are not hard and offer stunning views of the town from above and the surrounding landscape.
It is 14 kms from São João del Rei and 215 from Rio and only 7 from Bichinho..
Prices are quoted in the brazilian currency real/reais - R$ -, because the rates of dollars or euros change every day. At the time of my visit, January 2009, the dollar was at 2.30 reais and the euro at 3.30R.

Historical "Tiradentes"

by joaozinh

"Go back in Time!!!"

Tiradentes is a small Historical town located in Minas Gerais, Brasil, only a few hours by bus from Belo Horizonte. This was one of my favorite places I have been in all of my travels. The people are very hospitable and warm. Some of the most breathtaking landscape and scenery. The town is very clean and safe. To get to Tiradentes, you arrive in "São João del Rei" which also has some beautiful sites. If you like old historical buildings such as churches, "São João del Rei" is worth your time. There is a bus that takes you from "São João del Rei" to Tiradentes for just a few Reais. There is also a train that you can ride wich takes you slowly accross the countryside back and forth from "São João del Rei" to Tiradentes. Although Tiradentes is a small town, it has so much beauty and history that it is well worth the trip. It is a little corner of Brasil that I will never forget!

"tips for Americans"

I would suggest if traveling to these places, that you have someone with you that speaks Portuguese. Once you get off the beaten path in the interior of Brasil, you will not find many people who speak English. Without some backround in the language, it could be quite difficult to get around.
