#63 - Museum of Padre Toledo

In the small town of Tiradentes, Brazil, you can find the home of Padre Toledo. He was a priest who supported the Inconfidencia Mineira, the rebellion against Portugal led by Joaquim José da Silva Xavier.

Today, the home of Father Toledo has been converted to a museum to honour the memory of this great political leader.

Thanks to Karina for the educational card!
