The people of Minas gerais are called “ mineiros ”. Even if the majority do not speak foreign languages, they are always delighted to welcome foreigners in their region and to show them, with a lot of generosity and kindness, all of their specialties.
Very proud of their State, the people of Minas Gerais make sure to carry on their artistic and culinary traditions and savoir-faire: their amazing arts and crafts, their beloved samba dance, their colorful folkloric feast and carnival, their convivial quadrilhas group dance, their prized music styles like bossa nova, samba and choro, and of course their delicious pão de queijo , doce de leite and other typical dishes of the regional gastronomy.
