  • The Church is very beautiful, well worth meeting, besides the view from it is beautiful. The great thing is to play the bells have to hand, they say that if you hit a few times and make a wish he will be held. Worth going there and trying to

  • The Church is very nice, but it was closed, I didn't know your story or what it's like on the inside. I found some information on the page from Iphan. It was the first Temple of Alcantara this road today, either the location was the same, but what is now derived from this first time. Next to the Chapel, two bells. You can touch them. What delights is not the Chapel itself, but your place: the view is lovely. You can make your meal with this view. The Monumental restaurant, which is next to, has a modest shaded deck and serves there.

  • Belo exemplar da arquitetura neoclássica no Brasil e Maranhão..contudo elementos planos do frontão da fachada perfilam quatro cebolinhas de alho , e que por sua vez visualmente relembram abóbadas de mesquitas árabes, tal arquitetura foi umas das bases da nova arquitetura cristã no período medieval. Tal similaridade , fato que causou equívocas nas opiniões dos historiadores da arte no Brasil, enfim consolidando a ideia de que a igreja teria o estilo Bizantino.
  • Uma história de fé. Sabia que essa igreja foi reconstruída por um mendigo com as esmolas que recebia em 1832.
