Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Pilar Review

Local lore has it that 400 pounds of gold and silver leaf were used to cover the interior of Ouro Preto's most richly decorated church, built on the site of an earlier chapel and consecrated in 1733. The church building also houses the Museu de Arte Sacra (Museum of Sacred Art).
