The historic college-town does Brazilian Carnival like no other.

Ouro Preto, Brazil

Taking place just before Lent, Brazilian Carnival was traditionally celebrated as a last hurrah for tasting earth’s un-heavenly delights before a 48 day stretch of piety and repentance.

While Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and Olinda are famous for their elaborate parades and Samba schools, the historic college town of Ouro Preto is famous for its inland beauty and the spirited youth of its population. No one celebrates vice quite like college kids.
