Vesperata is an interesting outdoor night concert, held downtown on the famous Quitanda street. It’s performed twice a month from March to October.
Join one of the most amazing musical concerts from Diamantina’s culture: Vesperata. It’s a kind of serenade where the musicians play from the old buildings balconies to the crowd standing or seating along the many tables and chairs on Quitanda’s street. Each concert holds more than a thousand people. It’s a great sensation watching a live concert drinking great wines or if you prefer the famous Cachaça from the North of Minas. Pay attention to our Vesperata schedule and plan your trip!
