Tiradentes, in the state of Minas Gerais, emerged at the beginning of the 18th century, with the discovery of gold in the region. After the proclamation of Republic, the former city of São José received its current name, in homage to the martyr of the movement against Portuguese domination.

The city's historical center was registered as a National Historical Heritage site in 1938 and thus Tiradentes preserved its beautiful colonial architecture, stone-paved roads and baroque churches.
