WHAT DOES Villa Rica mean?
The Villa Rica Inn Boutique was born with reference to the origin of the rich Vilas of the Minas Gerais, in particular to the city of Ouro Preto, initially called Vila Rica. The region has special and diversified mining characteristics, within the so-called iron quadrilateral, one of the richest regions of Brazil. Even before reaching the lands of Vila Rica (present Ouro Preto), in the 16th century, the Bandeirantes began to travel through the present region of the State of Minas Gerais, in search of gold. And the route used by them to reach the lands of gold, was here, where we are, region of the Paraopeba Valley, district of Brumadinho. And it was thinking of these colonial characteristics, in the middle of the mountains, that the Villa Rica Inn Boutique, gathered in one place, the hospitality, the gastronomy and the art of Minas Gerais.
