This is the Parish Church of Santo Antônio (XVIII Century), in Tiradentes, one of the most beautiful historical cities of Minas Gerais State. It is a Minas Baroque jewel, important for its entranceway and large doors, designed by Aleijadinho (Antônio Francisco Lisboa, Brazilian most important sculptor), and for its altar, a golden extravaganza.

Although situated very close to the place where Rio de Janeiro was founded, in 1565, Urca is a young District, built in a reclaimed land area, at the foot of Sugar Loaf Mountain, in the first decades of the XX Century.
