Tiradentes is a small village at Minas Gerais state, in the brasilian coutryside. It's a historical site, too. It was in Tiradentes that the first ideas of freedom from Portugal arose, late in 1780's.
Tiradentes means "the one who pull out teeth", a dentist. It was a nickname of one of our first freedom fighters. So you needn't ask what did he do for living, right? This was the village where he lived for a long time.
I wanted to show this place to my kids. We spent an amazing week up there. Very good restaurants, art galleries, hotels and hostels, lots of handicraft shops. Hope you enjoy the photos

Largo das Forras _ main square, at evening.

All streets are like this. Portuguese
Colonial style. Débora, my younger daughter, is in this photo, too.

The mother church of Saint Antonio.

View from the mother church patio.

Look at the beautiful flowers...

...and birds(tucanos).

Wouldn't you like to live in a place like that? I'm sure I would...
