Brazil, the largest country of South America is full of outstanding white-sand beaches, pristine rain forests and rhythm-filled metropolises. With its dramatic landscapes of red rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and the exotic tropical islands, the county is well known as the most fascinating tourism destination throughout the world. In addition to this, its diverse ecosystem shows off the greatest population of flora and fauna with beautifully colored animals and birds that surprise its visitors.
São João del-Rei, the next city on the gold road, is less known than Ouru Preto, but no less richer. The Museum of regional art is located in one of the magnificent buildings of colonial times. The buildings here are not so high as in Ouru Preto, but the architecture is spectacular. The visit card of the city are the Church bells, which notify residents of important events. Each bell sounds in its own rhythm and is easily recognized. In São João del-Rei you can admire ancient buildings which are older than 100 years, but they look great, as if the Golden era lasts up to now.
Shutters and balcony decorations of each house are designed by their owners. The residents are very polite to visitors. Sometimes it seems as if the time machine has taken us to another epoch. Near the Cathedral you can visit a 100 year- old working Studio of Donna Pilar, where old pans and cooking utensils are mended.
