Photographer's Note

After visiting the Holy Trinity Chapel we went toward the town center looking for a place to park the car and decided to stop near the Fountain St Jose square. This fountain is one of the most beautifull fountain dating from the colonial period in Brazil. It was built by the town administration in 1749 to provide drinkable water to the citizens. Its achitecture style is tipically baroque. The image we can see on it's top is a St Jose and there's also the Portuguese crest just between the cross and the image.
Some say that each one of it's three stone faces represents love, health and wealth and that drinking from it you'll have it all. Others say that if you drink form this fountain you'll always want to come back to Tiradentes.

I post a workshop showing another POV as I wasn't sure about wich one to post. Which one do you prefer?

Para a versao em portugues veja o site Cidades Historicas.
