Routes & Tours
Get to know Tiradentes and make a real trip back in time.

Nothing like trying to get into the local lifestyle when we are in Tiradentes, to leave aside the noise and agitation of the great urban centers and walk through streets and alleys that look like a trip back in time.

The stone pavement of the city itself will make you walk slowly observing everything around, stroll through historical constructions and beautiful houses that are part of the history of our country. And it is in these townhouses and mansions that are the restaurants and handicraft shops of Tiradentes.

Be sure to visit the famous Chico Doceiro, the candy of Bolota, ride a buggy, visit the churches and museums of the city.

But Tiradentes also holds a wide range of nature-related activities such as hiking, biking trails, boat trips and lots of culture and history.
