The cultural, social, and architectonic importance of the city of Ouro Preto is very much explored, but aspects as its rich sensory information spaces and also its recollection value are not so emphasized. This factor shows the difficulty in understanding the urban organism as an esthetic object . Therefore, it is intended to discuss the poetics , a chosen concept to approach the sensible qualities which make up the impression of place produced by the temporal, historical, cultural, and emotional factors. For that reason, an analysis was made about the configuration of the city of Ouro Preto, situated in the state of Minas Gerais, featuring aspects of the creation of the urban fabric, and above all, the apprehensible esthetic aspects of its public spaces, monuments, perspectives and framing, which are the result of a constitution and the fact of being in a social community. Thereby, the diversity of facets in the establishment of this urban organism is evident and resulted in a monumental combination replete of meaning. The debates and analysis about the sensible apprehension in this city can be conducted by the mythic figure of a labyrithine space , which is also able to express how the spontaneous process of urbanization, although not necessarily deprived of intention, differs a lot from the planned urban space, and is intimately related to the basic activity carried out on the ground where it is settled. Presenting the mutual tranformation of the physical and social relations.
