Ouro Preto-Mariana Tourist Train

Train in Ouro Preto

On weekends, the Vale mining company operates a renovated historic tourist train between Ouro Preto and Mariana, leaving Ouro Preto’s train station once daily on Thursday and twice daily Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The 18km, one-hour journey is pretty but slow, snaking along a river gorge the whole way.

Best views are from the right side leaving Ouro Preto, and the left side leaving Mariana.
