Tiradentes - Santo Antonio Church I, Brazil

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.
