890 BR - Historic Centre of the Town of Diamantina (1999)

Brief Description

"Diamantina, a colonial village set like a jewel in a necklace of inhospitable rocky mountains, recalls the exploits of diamond prospectors in the 18th century and testifies to the triumph of human cultural and artistic endeavour over the environment."

蒂阿曼蒂那城历史中心

"蒂阿曼蒂那位于无人居住的荒凉岩石山脉之中,原为殖民地村庄。如果说绵绵山脉是条项链的话,蒂阿曼蒂那就是项链上的一颗宝石。这个小城展示给世人的是一幅18世纪采矿人挖掘钻石的场景,同时也是人类文化和艺术战胜环境的证明。"
