Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Houses

For this challenge I chose a set of colonial houses from Ouro Preto,¬†a former¬†colonial mining town, set on the mountains of the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. Ouro Preto was a center for gold mining and prosperity in the 18th century, during¬†Brazil’s Golden Ages. Its beautifully preserved Portuguese colonial architecture¬†and quaint cobblestone streets earned it the designation of World Heritage by UNESCO.
