Today I'll introduce you to "Minas Gerais" a beautiful historic state in Brazil, known as one of the richest mineral region in the country. It has beautiful churches with gorgeous interiors. Ouro Preto city is known for being the city that still today conserves most of the old Architecture since the Portuguese empire. It was one of the richest city in mineral and gold. In the 1700's when Brazil was still a Portuguese colony,  slaves were brought to work on the mines. All the gold found obviously belonged to the Portugal empire. It's a very long and interesting history that I can't resume properly without mentioning everything! So I'll make it short and now share with you pictures of this beautiful state.
