Digital Atlas of Minas Gerais' Heritage listed by the Institute of Cultural and Artistic National Heritage

Project aim

The elaboration of an updated Digital Atlas of the historical and cultural heritage of Minas Gerais allows diverse community sectors to know the State’s cultural heritage through a visual and interactive reading of the listed items, presented in maps, photographs, drawings and specific documents. This makes possible a constant evaluation of the physical conditions of that patrimony with the purpose of protecting it.

Besides, one of the features of the Digital Atlas is its comprehensiveness, since it gathers knowledge from various fields such as Geography, History, Archeology, Sociology, Politics, Architecture and Arts, rendering its content richer in variety.

Highlight of the day

Cataguases School, current State School Manoel Ignácio Peixoto


Colégio Cataguases, atual Colégio Estadual Manoel Ignácio Peixoto (Cataguases School, current State School Manoel Ignácio Peixoto) is located in Granjaria Neighbourhood, in the city of Cataguases. Oscar Niemeyer designed it between 1945 and 1949 and inaugurated it in 1947. Francisco Inácio Peixoto asked Cândido Portinari to elaborate a Tiradentes panel, which was on show at the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro in 1949, before it was transported to Cataguases. Nowadays, a photographic replica replaces the original, which was sold to the government of the State of São Paulo.
