DAY 18 (2 OF 3) – A WALK TO IGREJA DE SANTA EFIGENIA DOS PRETOS, OURO PRETO, BRAZIL

Before lunch, we ventured out of main square area to Santa Efigenia Parish. After an exhausting downhill and uphill walk, we reached Igreja de Santa Efigenia dos Pretos, the mother church of the parish. Unfortunately the church was under renovation and public access was not allowed. With the magnificent cityscape and scenery along the way, we didn’t regret the long walk.
