Pousada Richard has existed for more than 30 years on the secular Rua Padre Toledo.

On this street there are excellent examples of civil architecture from the 18th century, such as house number 114 (aside to the hotel), with painted ceilings, representing the five senses. Also the manor house known historically as “Casa do Padre Toledo”, architectural landmark of the period of mineral exploration, which is one of the most precious cultural assets built in the 18th century in Tiradentes. The manor house was of great importance in the social, political and cultural life of the city.

There are also other houses, such as the hotel, which give charm and a sense of entering the past, since the street is all underground wired.

The hotel received this name, because the german chemist Richard Rothe retired in São Paulo and decided to move to the peaceful Tiradentes, at a time when the cultural and tourist movement was still very small.

Establishing the hotel at that time, Richard Rothe spent 10 years running the it in this old mansion located in the historic center. The hotel has that name, in honor of him, who has already passed away.
