  • Is the oldest church in St. Louis. Unfortunately it is located in an area that has deteriorated historic centre. There were debris nearby which makes the environment outside the Church grim. With respect to the interior the Church is simple and apparently with a certain nonchalance with caution.

  • The oldest church of the city of St. Louis and the only one in Brazil with Byzantine architecture still preserved.

  • Fine specimen of neoclassical architecture in Brazil and Maranhão.. However elements of the facade pediment plans ahead four garlic shallots, and that by your time visually reminiscent of vaults of Arab mosques, such architecture was one of the foundations of the new Christian architecture in the medieval period. Such similarity, a fact that caused offensive opinions of art historians in Brazil, finally cementing the idea that the Church would have the Byzantine style.

  • A story of faith. I knew this church was rebuilt by a beggar with the alms received in 1832.
