Photographer's Note

Just going up the street (from my previus post), there's the Church of Saint Joao Evangelista (located at the Sun Square) and the ancient house of priest Toledo, one of the participants at the Inconfidencia Mineira - group that conspired against the Portuguese Rule for the Independence of Brazil. It's known that at least one of the "inconfidentes" meeting where held at the house. Nowadays it's a museum, that diplays objects from the illustrious owner. The house has about 14 rooms and some of them are adorned with delicate roof paintings.

At the workshop you can view the houses entrance and the Church at it's side where Toledo was the priest.
