Brazil's interior state of Minas Gerais, once a colonial mining capitol for the Portuguese crown, has changed little in appearance since the 18th century. With the help of laws to preserve its baroque architecture, the state's sky is scraped at every turn by 250-year-old church steeples, and lined with cobblestones.
