Photographer's Note

Due to the numerous archaeological finds in the region of Conceição dos Ouros, it is known that the place was already inhabited in the 14th century by the Cataguás 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 São Paulo towards the Minas Region, found in a watercourse that, later, would be called Ribeirão dos Ouros, a relevant amount of alluvial gold (on the margins of that same Ribeirão the town of Nossa Senhora da Conceição das Cachoeiras dos Ouros was founded in 1854). The city is located in the Sapucaí 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 inúmeros achados arqueológicos na região de Conceição dos Ouros, sabe-se que o local já era habitado no século XIV pelos índios cataguás. Durante os séculos XVII e XVIII as inúmeras entradas e bandeiras ( entradas: expediçoes financiadas pela Coroa Portuguesa e as chamadas bandeiras por membros da sociedade civil ) vindas de São Paulo em direção à Região das Minas, encontrou num curso de água que, posteriormente, seria chamado de Ribeirão dos Ouros, uma quantidade relevante de ouro de aluvião (às margens desse mesmo Ribeirão seria fundado o povoado de Nossa Senhora da Conceição das Cachoeiras dos Ouros em 1854). A cidade fica localizada no Vale do Sapucaí, por isso apresenta aspectos de vale com relevo ondulado. Nas bordas do vale se observa um relevo montanhoso, característico da região da Serra da Mantiqueira, onde está o município.
