257: Red roof and chimney
Sabará is a historic town at about fifteen kilometers from Belo Horizonte. The historical center hosts many monuments and churches, which count on a lot of tourists. The many festivals held in Sabará also attract many visitors. It is a pleasure to put your feet on the colossal cobblestones, which are worn over the centuries by our predecessors and by natural erosion. On weekdays, it is remarkably quiet; you can freely walk around and explore the extensive historic center. This time my eye did’t catch an ancient monument, but a house of more recent date: particularly the red roof and stone chimney, forming a wonderful contrast to the clear blue sky.
