Problems[edit]

At first sight there is no mention of population or area. This article should be at least three times the size considering the importance of the town. Vogensen 15:25, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

I think now the page is better. I thought the part of the university with its "republics" was especially interesting and unique. Vogensen 17:23, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Wrong Geographic Coordinates[edit]

On the article's heading, the coordinates 20°22′S 43°31′W are given for the city. Such place is off by 2.5 Km NNW to the "main street" of Ouro Preto (1.40 Km off to the West, 2.14 Km to the North). I know, because I was there.

The real coordinates of Ouro Preto are 20°23'08"S 43°30'13"W. However, when I try to correct this mistake, I find that it is utterly impossible to find the coodinates' numbers in the text.

Help! How can one edit Geographic Coordinates? (please?)
