Historic Centre of Diamantina

The Chapada Diamantina lies in the center of Diamantina, a city in the state of Minas Gerais near Lencois. The mining town of Lencois was the gateway to the Chapada Diamantina diamond mining region, and is a National Historical Heritage site. Check out the traditional streetlamps, restaurants, and shops were built during the mining era, which you can see on a walking tour. Three hundred years ago, an expedition discovered diamonds, and a mining town was built from wood and adobe. The streets are visually distinct, having been paved with large grey stones called capistranas. Enjoy this relatively out of the way mining town, it's lively atmosphere, few tourists, and diamond museum.
