Casa Dos Contos - Review

This beautiful Baroque house was built in the late 18th century as the residence of the local tax collector. Later, as the location of the royal treasury and the Gold Quartermaster, the house gained its current name.It is historically important for other reasons. For example, this house was used to jail members of the Minas Conspiracy, one of whom hung himself here; troops were stationed there whenever necessary. In the late 19th century and early 20th century,the post office used the house as its headquarters. In 1970, the Ministry of Finance took over the house and turned it into the Gold Cycle Research Center. This tells the story of currency and taxation in Brazil. It's a small but highly important exhibit. It also has historical slaves quarters.
