A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
The historic center of Diamantina has been well preserved. Since 1999, the cozy center is added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Every year, around one hundred and fifty thousand tourists come to Diamantina; not only for the historical architecture, but also for the music. The Seresta is a Brazilian music style, based on the ancient serenade. There are regular seresta nights with a selection of musicians and their orchestras. The city center is then completely occupied by music lovers. On quiet weekdays, you can walk through the center, and watch a bar owner preparing the terrace tables and chairs for his customers.
