  • Church well kept, we were fortunate to see the feast of Saint Matthias where on the first day there is a collective breakfast

  • I was delighted with the ruins of Alcantara, the Carmo Church has much of Baroque style with lots of details in gold and wood, was built between 1660 and 1690, even gone through several reforms, has preserved its originality whose walls have Portuguese tiles. Alcântara lived a golden period, having been one of the main cities of Maranhão, whose downfall came after the abolition of slavery, another important fact is that the rich and powerful of the time were buried inside the Church and the location of the tomb was determined by the size of the power of the citizen when closest to the main altar was the most powerful creature for those who like history is essential to this visit.

  • The white façade forms an interesting contrast with the debris of the houses in front. The Church is not always open.
