  • Little chapel, very simple, located on a high from where you have a beautiful view of the sea and the island of Deliverance. It was closed when we went. The side has two bells of different sizes filled with myths and legends.

  • The Church was always closed on the 2 days we were there. Next, a Bell Tower offers a beautiful view of the arrival of the catamarans that comes from s. Luis. Right there ... very, very plastic trash and cigarette butts, a shame!!!!

  • A church with a very interesting story, told by the guides, however, super bad preserved and closed doors. The only tangible thing are the bells on the outside that you can play and make requests. But what is worth is the very beautiful view from upstairs

  • 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.
  • Igreja do meu evangelho
