Visit Tiradentes

Founded in 1702 and years later named after the leader of the Inconfidencia Mineira, Tiradentes today is a sleepy place, full of cobbled streets and magnificent colonial architecture.

Tiradentes, Brazil

Tiradentes was founded in 1702 as Sao Jose del Rei, but after Brazil became a republic in 1889 the town was renamed in honour of the leader of the Inconfidencia Mineira, a plot by 12 citizens of Ouro Preto to gain Brazilian independence in 1789.

Tiradentes and his men were betrayed and he was executed pretty much before they even started. The town today is a sleepy place, full of cobbled streets and magnificent colonial architecture.
