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.
