This 305 year old monastery was the first women's retirement home in the captaincy of Minas Gerais. Its initial purpose was to educate girls on religious principles and teach them how to read, write, sew etc., so girls were prepared for a good marriage. In 1933 it became a convent for a dozen of cloistered nuns and nowadays it is famous among catholics and history lovers. © Wikimedia Commons/ Ailtonjx
