Estrada Real (Royal Road) road trip in Brazil
The Estrada Real (or Royal Road) is a series of historic routes which span the states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. These routes played an important role during the 18th/19th century gold rush in Minas Gerais. Nowadays, the Estrada Real makes for a great road trip for visitors to explore the historic colonial towns such as Ouro Preto, Congonhas, Mariana and Tiradentes. Expect picturesque towns, lush nature and amazing baroque architecture!
