View of the Antônio Dias neighborhood, with a highlight to the Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, the first great temple erected in Ouro Preto in the early 18th century (1730 approximately), the work of the Portuguese architect Manuel Francisco Lisboa. Located at 1,200 meters of altitude in the interior of Brazil, Ouro Preto is a historical city that keeps the architectural set of the gold cycle, which lasted all the XVIII century. It was the capital of Minas Gerais. This photo was used in the set of images inserted in my book "The Secret of the Twelve Prophets", published by Editora Armada (São Paulo, 2019).
