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.

Saint John Chapel

Ouro Preto/MG

Capela de São João (Saint John Chapel) is located on Ouro Fino Hill, in the neighbourhood of Antônio Dias, in the city of Ouro Preto. Of unknown authorship, it dates from the late 17th century. The building has a simple front façade, finished off by eaves made of many tile layers, composing a triangular fronton. This fronton has a central cross and two stone elements on top. The windows are of the guillotine type, and there is also a central spyglass. The bell is outside the chapel, on its right side, close to a cattle guard consisting of bridges of isolated planks.
