Photographer's Note

Due to the numerous archaeological finds in the region of Concei誽o dos Ouros, it is known that the place was already inhabited in the 14th century by the Catagu嫳 Indians. During the 17th and 18th centuries the countless entries and flags (entries: expeditions financed by the Portuguese Crown and the so-called flags by members of civil society) coming from S緌 Paulo towards the Minas Region, found in a watercourse that, later, would be called Ribeir緌 dos Ouros, a relevant amount of alluvial gold (on the margins of that same Ribeir緌 the town of Nossa Senhora da Concei誽o das Cachoeiras dos Ouros was founded in 1854). The city is located in the Sapuca Valley, so it presents valley aspects with undulating relief. At the edges of the valley there is a mountainous relief, characteristic of the Serra da Mantiqueira region, where the municipality is located.

Devido aos inmeros achados arqueol鏬icos na regi緌 de Concei誽o dos Ouros, sabe-se que o local j era habitado no s嶰ulo XIV pelos 璯dios catagu嫳. Durante os s嶰ulos XVII e XVIII as inmeras entradas e bandeiras ( entradas: expedi蔞es financiadas pela Coroa Portuguesa e as chamadas bandeiras por membros da sociedade civil ) vindas de S緌 Paulo em dire誽o Regi緌 das Minas, encontrou num curso de 墔ua que, posteriormente, seria chamado de Ribeir緌 dos Ouros, uma quantidade relevante de ouro de aluvi緌 (跴 margens desse mesmo Ribeir緌 seria fundado o povoado de Nossa Senhora da Concei誽o das Cachoeiras dos Ouros em 1854). A cidade fica localizada no Vale do Sapuca, por isso apresenta aspectos de vale com relevo ondulado. Nas bordas do vale se observa um relevo montanhoso, caracter疄tico da regi緌 da Serra da Mantiqueira, onde est o munic甑io.
